Today’s recipe comes from Chef Jack Amon of the Marx Bros. Café in Anchorage Alaska, who has this to say:

“This is a dish I serve frequently as an appetizer. The onion and carrot add a nice touch of color and the red chili gives it some zip. While designed as a first course, one could serve it over spaghetti and make a nice entrée.”
