Its red, its good, and you will want more! This recipe is a time saver. It uses chicken, but if you like you can use beef or lamb. I suggest making it double. Its that good.

We just love this recipe. I don't mess with it much, except that I mix the spices in bulk & just measure out of the container each time (that's how popular this recipe is). It's a great primer for "hiding" veggies! Most people have no clue how many veggies are in it & kids love it! Even my picky chicken nugget & fry guy!
