very easy and good! Seems like a lot of ingredients, but the prep work doesn't take much time at all! Convinced my family that you can eat good without sacrificing taste, will make again!


This recipe was awesome. It is a little more involved than most recipes so make sure you read through a few times before starting. I also added fresh mushrooms and it was delicious.

Me and my wife loved the recipe... It also took me alot longer than 30 minutes to prepare because I used fresh veggies and I crushed my own garlic. The only thing I changed was I used a can of drained Rotel (Tomatoes with green chilies) instead diced tomatoe and the chopped chilies. I would make it again..
