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.

Delicious! It was so easy to throw together, and had such great flavors. I used 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper by mistake, and was afraid it would be a bit too spicy, but it was perfect!
