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

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.

This recipe was amazing, thanks! There are some small things I will add like diced chipotles and other stuff to play around with. Great idea and great taste thanks again for sharing.

Now you talk about some fine eating. Both of those recipes look good. I might just have to try them both.
