Yum-Yum!

Mmmm, yummy! I just made this for the first time, and my family loved it. It is very easy and relatively quick to make. I used a 10 oz. can of tomatoes and green chiles with some diced fresh tomato finstead of the can of regular tomatoes, and I also added garlic powder. My family asked if I could make it again tomorrow night!
