Recipe by RMess

This recipe came from the back of a Contadina tomato sauce can about 20 years ago and has been a favorite in my recipe collection ever since. Great to serve for dinner parties --- no one realizes how easy it is to prepare!!!

I like this. It's very tasty and also super easy. I did increase the amount of peppers because I like a lot of veggies with my meat, and also added 4 or 5 hot Thai chilies. Might cut down on those by 1 or 2 next time, but still, this is very good. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
