Recipe by WiGal

My variation of a recipe from two people-MIL and Crescent Dragonwheel. It looks pretty and tastes zippy. I increased the chile powder after second review.

It was good. I used 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, next time I'll use 4. All in all it was good. A good recipe. Will make again.
