    Recipe Introduction

    This was really good.. I made mine in a pie dish and only needed 3 0r 4? soft shells for layering. I did cut the recipe in half.. I did add extra seasonings to it or it woulda been bland for my taste.. *My additions were: Cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes & garlic powder.Lina
