Nope! I'm a California/West Coastie Alaska Girl; never lived in the southwest or any other place.

I must have been a deep south girl in my previous life. I love anything Cajun; collard greens, gumbo, anything with cayanne pepper in it; or chili.... you name it.

Just kidding...well, not about needing to loose weight. Please, keep these wonderful recipes coming.

According to what I've been reading, the chili and peppers should help burn fat. The chicken is a diet meat. I think you'll be OK with this scrumptious sounding recipe.
