“This recipe is tasty, filling, and very easy to make and serve. You can make all on the stove top, ready to eat, or you can bake it before you eat. This style gets all the flavors melded even better! My family just loves this dish! We make this when there is little time - with teenagers running in and out, there isn't much of it! I have made this for potluck at the high school at least three times. Each time the pot has been scraped clean. It is great during the cold weather, too! You can make it spicy or tame it down for those who like it milder. Enjoy!”
