I clipped this recipe from the newspaper over twenty years ago. When it was just DH & I, this was a favorite. The kids aren't so fond of spicy foods, so I don't serve it often anymore. The first time I served it, I used the wrong spices for "heat" by mistake. When I checked the conversion later on, it turned out to be twelve times too hot. DH should've gotten a medal for eating it. But when the spices are balanced, this is a great dish.
