This is a family favorite! Super easy and Always delicious! If you like it spicier, throw in a jalapeno or chipotle pepper, this is a Smoked jalapeno. Grab some corn tortillas, sour cream, pico de gallo and you are set! - 03 May 2013

I cooked this for use with tamales, but my children were so enticed by the smell, they kept eating it and wouldn't leave it alone! They just LOVED it, plain. - 29 Sep 2008

This tastes really good. I preferred the pork to beef in tamales when I made both. - 29 Sep 2008
