    Hon -
    We don't have to wait until we make it to give you rep points - we can do it just cuz it looks good!

    Goat -
    That looks good too! I don't think I ever gave two different people points from the same thread before!
  13. I made this tonight and got raves from the family. Thanks for the recipe! I used a large cast-iron skillet and used my home-made salsa in place of the picante sauce.
