I got the original recipe from Better homes and Gardens New Cookbook, I made a few tweeks and it turned out so good, not too spicy not too bland and only 8 points for those weight watchers out there (new points plus program). Plus it just took 35 minutes.

Serve with a garden salad and some cornbread and you have a full meal in just minutes.
