NOTES:

  • I am still shocked by how good this recipe is.  It was incredible!  
  • Kids loved it. I mean LOVED it.
  • Next time, I might try with coconut milk and evaporated milk to make it less suicidal.
  • I added a small bowl of corn starch mixed with cold water to help thicken up the sauce right near the end.
