Arizona (and other states that are hot in the summer) find ways to serve a great meal without heating up the kitchen. Recipes like this one keep the house from overheating when the weather is exceptionally warm. It’s a fix-and-forget meal you can come home at the end of one of those blistering hot summer days to enjoy..
My second son returned from his LDS mission over 10 years ago now. Not long after he came home, he and I visited the Arizona Tempe Mission so he could show me around and have me meet the wonderful people he rubbed shoulders with. One of those people was Shelli Bates. She often fed the missionaries in her home. When we visited her, she served this meal. I’ve never forgotten it, and she was gracious enough to share the recipe with me.
