Your recipes look so very yummy!! I, too, love Mexican food a bunch!!

I am so sorry, but I printed out your recipe for the Mexican Shredded Chicken and the Frozen Peanut Butter Puffs, without asking your permission first. I will definately be checking with you first before printing any more. Again, I am so sorry.

Beth E. said...

Hey there...
I have this cooking in my crockpot right now...sure is smelling good!

I have a question:
Can you please give me the measurements for the cilantro, onion powder, and garlic powder? They were mentioned in the instructions, but weren't listed in the ingredients. I estimated the amounts, but would like to have the correct ones to use when I make this again. :-)

Thanks again for the recipe. I'm looking forward to supper tonight!
