    Talk about wicked good…I am going to make this again for the 4th. Don’t forget how pungent Cilantro is. Just a few sprigs is enough so as not to overpower the meat flavor and the black bean sauce. I served it with a twice baked potato…Now if only I can get my guests to leave. I think they want me to fix some more!!

    The salsa is TOO mild. Need to add some chili piquines, jalapenos, to spice it up.
