Oh my! This dish is a definite win!! It is soooooo delicious! It was too spicy for my 10 year old daughter – but the rest of the family devoured it. And Lael thinks some toothpaste is too spicy! I found this recipe on Pinterest (of course) but it is from Kevin and Amanda.com This girls blog is really great. She has everything from amazing recipes to crafty stuff add in a little travel stuff and photography tips. It’s one of those kind of sites I file under Has It All.
Anyway, you should definitely try this recipe!
