This was given to me by my friend Sheila. Great recipe for a meatless Monday or if you’re a vegetarian. This is one recipe you need to try. Also this recipeis such a versatile. Add shredded chicken more vegetables, like broccoli, pinto beans, kidney beans or black beans would be great. A good base recipe to make your own. Hope you enjoy!!
