my neighbor served this at a baby shower and everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. this was addictive and had a unique, fresh taste. don't leave out the bacon at the end..it is an essential ingredient, as is the chopped cilantro and lime juice.
these are so i can feel ok with my toddler son eating them. obviously, you could omit the chocolate chips and they'd be even better... but i didn't want to go crazy. i use "earth balance" margarine and "enjoy life" chocolate chips because they're dairy
various versions of this dish are made throughout the caribbean. you could easily make this a vegetarian dish by omitting the bacon. 1 teaspoon dried basil and 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme may be substituted for the fresh herbs. from the barbecue bible.
this is an adopted recipe that i've not yet had the chance to try, though i think it looks wonderful. reviews by anyone who tries it, especially before i do, will be appreciated. prep time includes 24 hr chilling time.
