    We LOVED this ~ I used ground buffalo (personal preference) and added minced onion and garlic to that. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written, except I didn't add quite so many black olives :) Fabulous blend of flavors and super-easy to make ~ great combo for a busy weeknight dinner. Thanks SweetJezebel ~ made for PAC FALL 2009!
