Recipe by Susiecat too

This is my husband's favorite meat filling for flatbreads. I use my own Whole Wheat Flatbread and we all enjoy this simple but delicious dinner. I serve it with a tossed green salad and a beer.

Who the hell puts tomatoes in roti! The roti I grew up on didn't have ginger/jalapeños nor tomatoes.
