    This was excellent for the Mexican Pork Chop casserole from this site. However, I have chili powder in my spice pantry that comes from the ethnic aisle of my grocery story. It is VERY HOT! 2 teaspoons was 1 1/2 too many. Next time, cut back on that if using the same chili powder.  -  10 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Next time I'll add the salt after the meat is simmering.  -  27 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
