    Please overlook the ridiculous rating by claylady01, who didn't even try the recipe. Try the recipe, then rate it, not the other way around.

    I added more jalapenos, we just like more. Great recipe! With fresh veggies I need a new variation. I ate it as a sandwich, hubby is not big on carbs so he ate his plain but loved it also.

    I can't wait to make this. It sounds amazing. I am always looking for things to grill rather than using the oven. I have made something similar but I have never thought to use all of those vegetables.
