*Johnna’s tip: Wondering where the spice is?? You know JKGF is not a huge fan of spicy food so we nixed the possible spice participants in this recipe. You, however, feel free to add in a jalapeno or two depending on how spicy you like it. This is a great, quick recipe in case you’re throwing together a last minute Cinco de Mayo celebration. Serve with some tortilla chips and soak up all that Tequila you will be indulging in, Ole!
