My mom picked up this cookbook, Eating the Bible: Over 50 Delicious Recipes to Feed Your Body and Nourish Your Soul by Rena Rossner, and it is pretty interesting. Each recipe has a bible lesson/devotion.
This recipe interested me as I was diagnosed as iron deficient an tend to forget to take my [ills as they are disgusting!! I mean seriously, they taste like blood and the taste takes forever to leave your mouth. I feel like a vampire every time-and not in a cool way!
This one goes with the Iron Sharpens Iron scripture and Deuteronomy 8:9

Thoughts After Reading:
So when I first made this, I realized that I didn’t have any cumin. Now you can substitute chili powder for cumin, which I thought I had but I ended up accidentally grabbing my cayenne powder instead.
Yes it was a giant mistake:
Now I’m Mexican, I like my food nice and hot but this was too hot. I felt like I was eating lava! My skin and tongue felt like it was melting off. Sour cream didn’t help or milk-nothing.
I have a policy to eat all I make as I don’t want to waste food or money and I did. But I cried every second of it. That food was so painful.
I remade it with the proper ingredients and it was fantastic. I strongly recommend it!
