    Hello! I’ve made this recipe 3 times now and we absolutely love it! I use our favorite salsa instead of the Ro-tel, because it has much more depth of flavor and kick. I also add a few shakes of “Slap Ya Mama” seasoning because we like spicy. My husband LOVES this recipe and eats it with corn tortillas and corn chips. I love it as a stew or rolled in a flour tortilla for a quick lunch. Thanks so much for this recipe!
