While living in Colorado for 18 years; I developed a fondness for Southwest and Mexican cooking. This is a wonderful recipe . . rich but wonderful. This recipe was found in the Colorado Springs Junior League Recipe Book. This is one of my favorite recipes to serve for company; especially since returning to Michigan.
