StoryThis came out of one of my favorite CIA books. For a different twist, roast the garlic before adding or try switching out some of the spices for whatever you have fresh on hand. Refrain from adding tomatoes as they'll make the mixture watery - but, if you MUST, core the tomatoes first and use only the firm meat.
