Serves 4-6. This is great for lunch or a quick and easy dinner. My family loves this recipe and we have it 3 or 4 times a month. It takes longer to cut up everything than it does to prepare the entree!

I usually use chopped deli ham. I get the deli to slice it about an inch thick and I use 2 slices. Or you can use one of the prechopped bags of ham found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.
