This recipe really should have been shared with you all months ago, however, I had misplaced the photos and just found them again a few days ago. Oops! My sister in law made this yummy meal a few months ago and sent me the pics. She said it was a huge hit with her family and packed with flavor. My kind of meal for sure! When I saw the pics, I knew it was a must share recipe! Although I have not made this yet, I definitely will be making it soon!! Thanks Adriana!!
