"This was an excellent dish with alot of flavor. I used diced tomatoes with green chiles and served it with boneless ribs and steamed basmati rice. It had some nice heat. I will definitely turn to this recipe when I have zucchini and summer squash to use. I loved the combination with corn and green peppers, and it was super easy to prepare. Thanks TOH for another great recipe!"
