Looking for a recipe called -Evettas or Avettas- Turkish maybe?

My mother in law used to make a recipe she called Evettas. It was -Lamb, rice, beans, tomato paste? She now has Alzheimer's disease and she can't remember the recipe. This was her "go to dish" whenever we got together on our visits to Fla. I have done numerous web searches and have found nothing. I am thinking maybe it is a regional dish that has other names in other regions. She says it is a Turkish dish, but she got it from her mother, who spoke 6 different languages, so it could be Portugese, Spanish, Greek, or middle eastern. Anyone know this recipe?
