Author Notes

This recipe came from the wife of a friend of mine. It tastes wonderful fresh from the oven, but even better the next day. I usually wrap it in a tortilla and eat it like a burrito or pour it in a bowl over corn chips with a little bit of sour cream or Mexican Crema. This can also be made with a pork roast instead of beef. —Chris Cole
