Recipe by RepoGuysWife

I had this at my monthly Bunco group. One of the lady's husbands made it and gave us the recipe. It is to die for. I add in diced green pepper, saute it with the shrimp and more seasoning than called for when I make it.

This recipe was delicious! My husband was saying "mmm," with every bite and he doesn't even like mac & cheese. I followed the directions exactly, added extra cajun seasoning and put in some chopped bacon.
