“This recipe is a "cheater". It is quick and easy for a good meal after work when you are in a hurry. Or, if you have left over roast beef on hand and want to make your own polenta, you can make it more "homemade". I love it. There is some heat to it, buy mild tomatoes with chiles if you prefer. Enjoy!!”
