This is a recipe I got at my grocery store. Each week they do recipes and let us taste. This one tastes so good that I had to share with you all. Hope you'll enjoy if you try it. It's not written the quantity of servings so I guess 4. If you try it, tell me how many serving you got and I'll edit it. Same thing for preparation and cooking time.

Amazing! I took the option in step 4 and served over linquine and had this for dinner.....super delicious! I added no salt...none needed. These simple ingredients turned into a gourmet meal that I will happily make again and serve to "foodie" guests! Boomie, you have a winner here.

For me, the "surprise" is how well this turned out! This is very unusual, and sure to please the adventurous palate! The instructions didn't say to finely chop the jalapneo, so I did it anyway. It made enough for 2 endives and serves 4-6 as an appetizer. Thanks, Boomette! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
