This is a fabulous recipe. I switched the Bourbon to Jack Daniels instead. The smoky flavour was amazing. Originally, I cooked it as a side dish but it turned out to be more popular than the main course!!!!

Chia this was excellent. I had this as a light meal after a full day of shopping in Little Rock. Hubby was worried that I might set the house on fire, but all went well. I did add some crushed red pepper flakes for a little more zip. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe.

This is a great recipe chia....quick, easy and delicious. I made as is, leaving out the optional pecans. Used this as an appetizer and it was a hit. Thanks so much for the recipe.
