This isn't a new recipe for me, yet I couldn't help but share one of my most favorite meals ever! I found this recipe a while back on Foodnetwork.com and fell deeply, madly in love with this. I had to modify the original recipe since the hubs wouldn't be into the onions, peppers, or cooked tomatoes, so if those interest you, you can use the original recipe. The seasoning combo is stellar and rad and awesome and tubular and....any other 80's slang you can think of! It has just a hint of heat, but if you'd like to kick it up, definitely add as much cayenne as you'd like. Like I said, this is one of my most favorite dishes, so I highly recommend you give this a try!
