Delish! Great flavor and eat to make. (I used sausage instead of chicken and shrimp, and baked longer than 15 minutes.)
I fallowed the directions step by step and was a very simple dish to make. I subed shrimp with sasuage, the family loved it!!!!
Great I added twice the amount of Cayenne and some andouille sausages
