I've fixed this twice now. The first time, I think I may have added way to much cayenne. The next time, the correct amounts. This is wonderful with a blander meat, but since it does have a "kick", probably not a spicy meat. I'm making it yet again, and every time I make it, I tend to eat most of it from the pan before I even get a chance to serve it. It's a new favorite.
