I've been making this recipe for almost 18 years now...my sister taught it to me..it's become one of my favorite ones. I've found over the years that I prefer making it with chicken and the green sauce..but it's good either way! It's always a hit wherever I bring this dish and people are always asking me for this recipe. There are never leftovers with this recipe!
