This was just wonderful, we've had this a couple of times now and it will be a staple in our home! I took the previous advise and upped the garlic. Definately go for the full chili quota, this is not a hot dish at all, but the flavous is just amazing. Served with rice and roti bread, what an easy and quick weekday dinner! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
