      Mmmm...tasty... I ate this for dinner 5 nights in a row! I was a little leery about banana flavor in my dinner, but when I ate the finished product, it was just a really nice blend of all the flavors. It was easy to make, too - only took about 15-20 min. to do all the prep work. As a bonus, it even looked good - lots of color!

      I tried this because of the recipe contest and it was delicious! The mix of Asian and tex-mex flavors was so interesting and the hint of sweetness from the banana added even more depth. Definitely one of the most creative recipes entered.
