READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Clare Bear

Smooth and mellow, with an undertone of sweet and spicy. Great comfort food, colorful and beautiful.

Tasty & easy! I made it as-is, which I'd agree is on the mild side, then added a 1 teaspoon curry powder and one shake of cayenne pepper. Both were good but I had a slight preference for the second iteration. Also tested whipping cream vs sour cream in the end - both tasty.
