      Thank you for posting this! I saw this recipe a year ago in the Austin paper and made it for a pot-luck and then for my family, and it was the biggest hit!! I wanted to make it again this year but couldn't find the recipe. Until now! It is seriously the best stuffing i've ever had. ALSO i'm a vegetarian so I just used vegetable stock and veggie tamales. I can't wait to make it again.
