I love this stuff! Anytime I make it for friends they're VERY impressed. I make an adjustment or two: I like to use about 6 peppers to add a little more texture and flavor. I also add thyme and a little bit of cayenne pepper for a really nice heat. Thanks!

This was great! Very similar...if not exactly the same to a recipe I have in one of my cookbooks, but it was a lot easier to open a new page on the laptop! I forgot the tomato paste, which would have helped...but it still tasted and reheated great!

This was simple to make and is delicious. I found that I didn't have vegetable stock, so I used chicken broth. I know that this changes the taste, but feel sure that the veggie stock would be just as tasty. I'm looking forward to this for lunch at work tomorrow! Thanks for the good recipe post!
