Had to try this recipe with the abundant crop of Zucchini we had and myself having some Indian in my blood!! Hubby ate his on a hot dog and I just took a bite straight out of the jar and thought it was really good. Going to make some for Christmas presents!! Thanks sooo much!
Rating comes from hubby who enjoyed this on his burger! I didn't care for the spice combination but it seems to be common to all the other recipes on this site - so it must be just my taste buds. I used 2 red peppers & 2 green peppers - otherwise I didn't waiver from the recipe. Thanx Chuck!
