    Dib's's Note:

    I make this for my daughters all the time and it's now a family stand-by. Easy, tasty and dinner's ready in about 1 hour. Serve with salad and hot cornbread. It's also really nice with shredded sharp cheddar sprinkled on top.

      Great recipe, comes together really easy too. I made this without the tofu, because of the Mister and without the corn, because of me trying to stay Lower Carb... just the right amount of heat for us too! I will make this often!

      I love this stuff! I have made this several times since I found this recipe and it is delicious. I used boca beef instead of tofu. This takes a while to make but it is so worth it, and it makes so much that I freeze some for later. You can't even tell it doesn't have meat in it. Very hearty and very yummy! Thanks!
