  • Great recipe! Before I pour in the liquids I let the rest of the ingredients covered on low heat for 10 minutes so the flavors come together a little more. Add bay leaves, oregano leaves and recao (cilantro) for a more flavorful dish without adding calories.
    I also skip the tomato sauce to avoid - 12/7/12
