The quantity of serrano pepper and cayenne that I use in this recipe does make this a very spicy dish! If you prefer a milder dish, then you can reduce the number of serrano peppers and/or deseed them. Feel free to also adjust the amount of cayenne pepper to suit your tastes.
Enjoy this great Mexican fast food! I like to serve this with rice, which absorbs the delicious juices. You will absolutely love this dish!
