I brought this to our family Christmas dinner. Our guests from Panama thought this was wonderful! I ended up leaving the leftovers with them and promising to send the recipe. One thing I added was a small jar of diced pimento which gave it some good color for our holiday dinner.
I made this dish for a T'Day potluck, (it travels well) and it got rave reviews from everyone. I had to bake it a little longer than indicated before the center was set. As I was making it, I thought another variation might be to add a little cooked broccoli - I'll let you know if I try it next time.
Kayelle...welcome! And WOW was your recipe a hit with the family and friends, although I had a hard time sharing it. Yummy!!! And I bet it would be good with ground beef added for a "casserole" dinner. Hope to see more great recipes from you! Happy cooking! Aunt Yaya
I cooked this for a potluck. The green chilies and olives did not match my taste but this dish was devoured by my co-workers. So it definitely appeals to many individual tastes. It was easy to do and very inexpensive. I would recommend it.
