      OMG! If I could give this recipe more than 5 stars I would! I loved the ease of prep, and the flavor was awesome! I wasn't sure which size can to use, and realized that 1 4 oz was not nearly only had 3 chiles in it. hehe So I would recommend at least 3 of those. I made up a green gravy to serve with these as well that I will be posting. Deeeeelicious!!!
