About

Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Southern, you name it we love spicy, ethnic and regional foods. I found this recipe in the BHG magazine and made it vegan, very easy to do with just a change in a few ingredients. This came together quickly and was even better as a left over. Casserole and one pot wonders make dinner a snap! Don't forget to garnish with a side of shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream (Toffuti) and jalapenos. (head over to my blog for step-by-step photos)
