This recipe has the trinity in it that is what makes it creole cooking. After reading Derf's review, I set out to find what other Creole recipes used for spices. I found most used garlic and either chili powder, red pepper or Tabasco sauce. So you might want to add 2 cloves of garlic and one of the other pepper spices to put a kick into this recipe. Let me know which pepper and how much you use.
