Recipe by Trish Liechty

My husband really liked this. Spice it up if you like by adding more cayenne pepper and paprika. Maybe even some tabasco sauce.

Very easy to prepare, has a nice taste! I should have made a lot more of it, So I could go back for seconds. I added a little more cayenne than the recipe called for so it had a nice little kick.
