This is tasty and it's quick and easy to prepare. I had planned to thaw some of my Lasagna for supper but couldn't get enthused about the idea. It's really good Lasagna, one of my best, but not that night. I wanted something "DIFFERENT"! This is what I came up with. I'm smuggly pleased.

I tried this a year ago & missed rating it... I just tried it again & it turned out even better the 2nd time to make it a definate keeper for us. I needed to use some cooked steak from the night before & thought this recipe worked nicely. On the 2nd try I ramped up the jalapenos abit more and sub'd some of the soup with chicken broth & yogurt. We don't like real goopy dishes & we found the broth helped make it a nicer consistancy for us. Did the rest as written & served with some cooked rice mixed in at the end, thanks for sharing your recipe.

This was very good. I used canned jalapeno and it gave the recipe a nice kick. We had it over ramen and then egg noodles. YUMMY!
