This recipe is from The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes. It is nice and flavorful and has one of my favorite components--quick. I made this with the tomatoes that have added chili; however, it can also be made with regular dice cut tomatoes. Hope you enjoy. Serve this with fresh bread and a side salad for a quick weeknight dinner.
