      This recipe is so tasty and so very easy and quick. I did leave out the jalapeno as the family does not like it but added some chopped chives and parsley as well. Everything else was as per recipe, and it was loved and really enjoyed by everyone. I tripled the recipe for a warm side dish to go with dinner and the leftovers were taken to work the next day.... with some cold chopped chicken added, DS and I ate it cold as a salad for lunch and we both really loved it! Thanks Caroline this is really a great recipe.

      YUM YUM YUM!! Another easy and delightful PAC recipe. This was so tasty (and guilt free) - and it grew on me with each spicy bite!!! By the time I got to the bottom of the bowl I was scoping on the portion I saved for my neighbors. :wink: Oh's easy enough to make I can have it again tomorrow. Thanks for posting Caroline, my sweet PAC baby.
