I did or should I say WE enjoyed this recipe! I did skip the bacon. removed the sausage from the casing. Used red and yellow bell peppers. Added 2 yummy tablespoons of dried Italians herbs. I did use a whole 12 ounce can of evaporated milk just because the rest would have been discarded. Thanks for a very hardy comforting meal.
