Introduction

I like this so much, I'll eat leftovers for breakfast (I don't even reheat it). We typically use it as the main course, or can be a side dish for any Mexican meal. I show 3 T of bacon grease in the ingredients list. I'm not exactly sure how much I use, I just add it for flavor. This used to be one of my favorites as a kid & one of the first main meal dishes I learned to cook. I like this so much, I'll eat leftovers for breakfast (I don't even reheat it).

    I've been making a recipe much like this for years. I don't use as much bacon or the bacon grease, olive oil instead and add oregano. - 1/24/13
