This is a family friendly recipe. It goes very well with rice. I would recommend Spanish rice.

"I calculate this to 8 points. I used chopped up chiles at the bottom instead of whole chiles. Very hot and it took 8 chiles to cover the top of the pan. In hinted sight, i think I would chop up one or 2 chiles and add them to the swimming pot next time. Very delicious and recommended. "
