Jamaican Jerk Paleo Stir Fry

Chopped Veggies

If anyone out there is reading this, you will quickly learn that I like my foods spicy. Very spicy. Luckily, Mr. What I Gather shares my love of fire-y foods. We could run into some serious problems if he didn't. I cooked this dish up when we were getting ready to go out of town and needed to use up lots of veggies before the trip!

We had a Jamaican themed dinner party over the summer and made these amazing Jamaican spiced vegetables. I was craving those veggies, but wanted to turn it into a main dish so I came up with this stir fry. I may like to tip the spice scales, but you can easily modify this recipe to suit your tastes.
