This delicious treat is sure to rock your mouth. I love this recipe for a hearty meal and it is perfect for these hot summer nights! I have been working with this recipe since my friend Erin Rogers cooked it for me in 2009 and have been tweaking it for awhile now. I think it has finally reached the point of unstoppable!! Tell me what you think!
