A family favorite that might of come from another family member???Seasonings can be adjusted to suit your taste. I like to let it set for a day before re-heating and serving.Cooling time not included...if you're in a rush and have a hand blender you don't have to cool. This can look special with a swirl of cream on top for those unexpected guests.
This recipe is from the Milk Calendar which I receive annually. It is a one pot recipe which I made often when I was working, and still come back to when I need a "comfort food" dish. The ingredients can be varied to suit your family's taste. I don't use the chili powder and usually let simmer for about 25 min over med low heat with occasional stirring.
This recipe is from a booklet " Bake Fest '96' which after carrying around for 12 years I finally made yesterday with excellent reviews from my family. It calls for a 9" springform pan , I used a 9" square pan with excellent results.
I adapted this recipe from food reference.com. I start preparing this by slicing the carrots, onion and pepper in one bowl and the snapper and tomatoes in another. This is one of our favorites. I prepare the snapper mixture in my electric fry pan.
