This was delicious. It didn't take too long to make and was very tasty and filling. I halved the recipe and it was more than enough for the three of us. I made two substitutions: I couldn't find pimientos so I chopped up sweet red peppers instead and I used turkey instead of chicken. Definitely liked this and will make it again.
