This is really very, very good. I've made it twice. I did make some changes the second time only because we like things very spicy. I used a can of Rotel instead of the tomato sauce, increased the garlic to 2 large cloves and tripled the amount of raisins (used golden). The second time around I didn't have walnuts, so I skipped them and it was just as good although I missed the walnuts.
5 stars!! this recipe is fantastic! i left out the raisins but loved the crunch the walnuts gave..i might cut back just a tad bit on the cinnamon but my aunt might kill me, she told me she stopped eating the rest of her thanksgiving meal just so she could get more of this dish!!
