"This is a very healthy recipe that I just threw together and it was so tasty I thought I would post it. For once I kept track of amounts. This will go very nicely over pasta (I am using tofu pasta) and it will be perfect in a tortilla with refired beans. If you like extra saucy add a 14 ounce can of chopped tomatoes. We just like it moist not too saucy. Could make a great sandwich with some added cheese. You may also make this using cut up breasts or thighs"

wow this was wonderful, so much flavour and a lovely tingle on the palate!! and so easy to put together. I used ground dark meat turkey and just made half a recipe but left the jalepeno as one whole one and used parsley instead of the cilantro. A great Saturday supper thanks !!
