Recipe by Sweetiebarbara

This is one of my standard company dinners, a favorite of our family as well as our guests. Depending on who is coming to dinner, I either spice it up, or tone it down with the peppers I use. I like the flavor of the Jalapeno. I serve this with Saffron Rice (I recommend Saffron Rice), a Spinach Salad, and Lemon Meringue Pie (I recommend Lemon Meringue Pie).
