    This thing is freaking delicious!!! Couldn't find sun-dried tomatoes, so I ended up cutting some fresh tomatoes for this recipe. Someone in my family can't handle spicy food, so I only added one chipotle pepper from a can into the mixture, then used chipotle chili pepper to make up for the flavor. My family LOVED it! Will make it again!
