      I used this recipe for Good Friday Bacalao and it turned out really well. The only change that I made is that I used 4 - 14 oz cans of fire roasted tomatoes. After I did that I was afraid that it was too much, but it really wasn't. It turned out really well. Preparing bacalao has become a Good Friday tradition for me. I was really happy with this recipe, the addition of the chile ancho and cinnamon really gave it a great flavor.
