    gourmetmomma's Note:

    From an award winning regional cookbook from the Junior League of North Harris Country (Houston). It is called Texas Ties. I made this and the chilled poblano soup for an elegant vegetarian dinner party. This is best served with Mango Salsa on top.

      Really good...I made this for my family and friends and they all thought it was really tasty and unique! The only thing I would change is to make more sauce to cover the bottom of the pan. Great recipe...thanks! :)
