From "Food and Wine" magazine, September 2006 ed. I decreased the amount of oil used. This does require quite an inventory of ingredients, but it is worth it!

Top Review by Chilicat

This was a really tasty dish, and very quick and easy to make. It was also very pretty, with the green and red flecks giving it a confetti-like appearance. DH doesn't like water chestnuts so I substituted finely diced jicama, which worked out great. Although the meat mixture was flavorful on its own, it can be a little on the dry side since there really isn't any sauce once it's cooked. I highly recommend serving it with some additional sweet chili sauce on the side. I made my own using Recipe #457035 and it really made the dish shine. I'll be making this one again for sure!
