“Adapted from a recipe in a magazine. Add more chicken, shrimp, and ham to suit your personal taste. The Pico De Gallo is optional. However, I really like the addition of this ingredient. Instead of the diced tomatoes and hot sauce, substitute a 10 ounce can of Ro*Tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies. The Ro*Tel really gives it a nice kick.”
