AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! Beautiful colours, wonderful flavour, definitely a 'do-over!!' There was a sweetness in there somewhere -- I think maybe the red pepper -- that seemed a little out of place to me, so next time I'll just omit that. This was a perfect meal for a hot humid day, especially with a wedge of Rita L's Corn Bread with Jalapano and Cheddar (#50379)!
