"Surprisingly simple and quite good. Another time I'd add a little more flavour to the tomatoes."

"Just saw the local Providence news use this recipe! Missed it on tv, so I searched for it & who would thunk it's a fellow Okeechobee, Floridian who posted it?

Lived there for over 30 years! Wow...
This is a fantastic recipe & it shold be re-posted & brought to the light of day again!
Delicious! Only drawback? Need to double for my family of 4! No leftovers in my house & everyone wanted more!"

"I used salsa instead of diced tomatoes and sprinkled a tablespoon of feta cheese into the salsa while cooking. Hubby said it was awesome!"
