"I thought this was tasty. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic and a can of chopped green chilies for an extra pop of flavor."

"Hubby and I absolutely loved this recipe when I made it from one of ToH's cookbooks. It's especially good with orange pepper instead of green, and it makes a great meatless dish. Substitute vegetable broth for a true vegetarian dish. I'm bringing it (sans shrimp) to the potluck Christmas party for hubby's Army battalion."
