    Andrea's Note:

    This is a fantastic fusion of flavors. Be careful when cutting the jalapeno peppers. I keep a box of food service gloves in my kitchen to use when I have to handle chile peppers.

      almost a year to the day ago i wrote the above comment and then got side tracked..... anyway i have made the dish several times now and have also tried it using beef..... that was very nice too... 5 stars still apply, but.. i have to say, i doubles all spices etc as i found the end result was lacking in flavour... there again i always like my flavours to make there presence felt in my mouth as a pose to being delicate and subtle.... higjly reccomend it...:)
