When I came across this recipe I found it an intriguing mix of ingredients. I'm so glad that I decided to try it it's delicious. Having said that I didn't go exactly by the recipe and my changes were as follows: no wine as we don't care for it, I used the potato and subbed chopped raisins for the dates as dates are very expensive here, lastly I didn't have the chayote or squash so did without. Still the result was a very pleasant meal that even my super picky DH enjoyed. Don't be afraid if this, it's great! Made for Comfort Cafe, Jan '10.
