This recipe has been in my family so long I don't even remember where it came from. Mexican-style food has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. This easy dish is mild, but it can be made hotter if desired.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2014

Wonderful recipe!! Used rotel tomatoes, 3 cans, instead of green chilies and diced tomatoes. Was just spicy enough without being too spicy. I baked the steak with all the sauce. It was delicious!! My husband loved it too!! This will be made again!!
