We left all of the burn out of this recipe as a few of us cant handle the heat. I was planning on using sweet potato as another foodie suggested but forgot to grab them so we will have to try it next time TY Sue
I made it for dinner today and we didn't have any leftovers. I have to disagree with those who thought it was too spicy.It was just right for our taste. I followed the recipe exactly and only substituted lemon juice for lime juice. It is a nice side dish or a vegetarian entree. Will make it again,only double the recipe.Thank you.
What a yummy dish! Shhhh... don't tell anyone, but we prepared it with sweet potato.... the mixture of sweet and spicy was heavenly!
