    This was Delicious! ! I added some chopped jalapeno and onion. I used Grand biscuits that I flattened and used to fill them. Cilantro was also thrown in. I baked them up and served them with creamy avocado and Mexican Creme. The meat was already seasoned and chopped along with a can of beer, so I put it in the oven and went to work out. When I got back, the house smelled Good! They were very mummy if not a bit Hot from peppers. Thanks Lola. Keeper  -  31 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
