I am sure that you have all seen this recipe floating around on Pinterest. I know because that is how I found it. You know the one that says my husband asked me to make this 5 times while he was eating it. I am always skeptical of things that explode all over Facebook or Pinterest but decided to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised that this recipe was amazing. Might have been a bit to spicy for the kids but my husband and I loved it. You can find this recipe over at kevin & amanda. It also tasted great the next day as leftovers, always a plus in my book.
