I found this in my church sunday cookbook even though it's got some weird ingredients in to it. Very good.

Yum! I came looking for a non-dessert banana recipe, and I found a novelty and a staple! I followed John Wenzelburger's suggestions for adding the fruit later, and I doubled the almonds because I like crunchy bits. The meat and sweet combination is very pleasant, not at all overly sweet. I only used 2 tsp of sugar, and I'll probably omit it entirely in the future. I didn't need any tomato juice for thinning. The consistency is that of chili, and the whole effect is further improved by serving over brown rice.
