“My beloved father lives alone and is a diabetic and workaholic! In the past few years, I have made it a point to try and bring him a few meals per week that are healthy and filling. I found this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens "Our Best Diabetic Recipes" magazine edition. You can add more chile peppers to suit your taste. I always pour in the remainder of the adobo sauce from the can into the pot. I love the radish and jicama added to the pico.”
