I sorta came up with this one on my own after going to one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio. I was probably thinking about it too much, but I was just like 'I could make this!' So I went home and I just started playing around with some ingredients and vuala! It is soooo good and very healthy. Hope you enjoy it!
