I found this delicious recipe in the Chicago Tribune. I served it with rolls and a green salad and it was very satisfying.

A friend recommended this recipe and it was absolutely delicious!! Followed the directions and kept all the ingredients. The only thing that I did differently was I added more limes than what was recommended. I used four limes instead of two. I took to a dinner party and there were no leftovers to take home :( Will make again for sure.
