This was really good, and authentic tasting, without to much hassle. The thickness was right on and the flavor was outstanding. I also used red peppers, and the flavoring was subtle, which was OK by me! I served this with recipe#266472 and it was perfect! I'll make this again; thanks for sharing, Lavender Lynn.
