I know, I know… I’m a day late, but I wanted to be able to include the recipe that goes along with the picture and couldn’t do that from my phone.  Sorry!

Fixin’s for tonight’s dinner…  This recipe I stumbled upon by accident and it’s become a favorite around our house.  Note: I a) don’t use green chiles – I usually just buy a fresh serrano and sauté it with the onions and ground bee but forgot to buy one and b) forgot to grab the Fritos when I took this pic.  OOOOPS.
