Recipe with Jalapenoes for Coco


I made this the other day and not only does it have a great name, it tastes great. If I was in NZ I would add sweet little pipis and cockles at the last minute. Or you could replace the fish with mussels, or throw in heaps of seafood to make a kind of mexican boullibase or make a casserole version with chicken...
