Vegetarian and gluten free, this is a never-fail recipe that always gets rave reviews. It is also unusual enough that it always gets attention. I make this with mild or half mild and half medium hot. When tried it with all medium hot, the heat overpowered the flavor. This is a fabulous pot-luck dish.
