Came across this recipe that I used to make. Saving it to make again. Not sure on the amount of servings. I remember it made a lot.

My husband was pretty excited to eat the leftovers the next day; I thought it was zesty too. I did make some changes by using fresh green beans and plank cut some corn off the cob since they are so cheap and also left out the chopped tomatoes and adobo seasoning. I would make it again.
