RECIPE BACKSTORY
I was looking for something to make w/chicken, potatoes and tomatoes. We have the hubby's boy up from FLA for a few weeks, and oddly, he does NOT like the SPICEY! So, I have to tone it down a notch or two. I found a number of versions of this on the Internet; as we all know, following instructions of any sort is not my forté, so natch- this is my version and it turned out quite well, thankuverymuch. The Kid LOVED it. His daddy had already warned him I was a "cook".
