This week I was in the mood for something different. I wanted something that captured all of the above tastes in one dish. As a result, I thought of this recipe, and to my surprise it hit all the right spots. It's sweet, salty, tangy and spicy — all in one! My family and friends loved it and kept going back for more. It tastes great with tortillas chips or just as is. This recipe is going to be a definite keeper in our household. I hope you'll give it a try and see for yourself.
