    I followed instructions to the best of my ability years ago and this recipe became an instant favorite in our home. My audience said they would pay good money in a restaurant for this dish. I still make it exactly as directed except now I cook a couple strips of bacon and crumble them into the sauce. I serve with Spanish rice made from scratch.
