Fantastic recipe! I've been making this at least once a week for the past month, and we are yet to be tired of it. Wonderful, full flavors, and it really lends itself to experimentation- I've made it with chicken instead of fish, frozen veggies instead of spinach, and have used cayenne instead of jalapenos, and all its permutations taste great. Great job!

Terrific flavors! I made a LOT of substitutions, while staying with the spirit. 1. I used mustard greens. They added a wonderful zip. 2. I used rotel instead of the tomatos and chilies 3. I used sweet onions instead of shallots. This won raves last night, and satisfied me as leftovers tonight. a real winner!

This was absolutely fantastic! Followed the recipe except substituted the jalapeno with Korean chiles. I've made this twice so far. I was surprised my husband liked it. Thanks.
