    But tell me, where do you find stokes green chili sauce with pork? If I cannot find it here, what do you suggest as a replacement?

    You can really use any canned green chili sauce you find in the mexican section at your grocery store. I often use different kinds - they had the Stokes listed in the nutritional area, so I chose that kind. Maybe I should have listed it in more generic terms, but feel free to use whatever you find!

    These are really good, I thought they might be a little weird because of the cream cheese and green sauce/sour cream mix but they are really good! I'm happy that I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow :) - 1/21/10
