  • This tastes just exactly like the version I buy at my fav mexican restaurant! I do once a month freezer cooking and this worked perfectly for that.I lessened the spiciness a little since I have very young mouths to feed, BUT they did eat it happily. This is going to become one of my regulars! - 3/15/10
