My mom made this when I was growing up, and now it's in frequent rotation for family meals. It's one of the few that both of my kids love! Cathy Flikkema - Salt Lake City, UT

"This is really good. Even my son-in-law who isn't a fan of olives, chilis, or casseroles went back for a second helping! It makes a lot, too."
