Fabulous dish! Everything about this was great - the ease of prep, the clear and accurate instructions, the color and look of the finished dish, and the wonderful taste. Even the amount of heat was perfect - very spicy, enough to clear those sinuses, but not enough to overpower the rest of the ingredients. I did use the full tsp of hot sauce as well as a whole chili pepper (which I partially seeded). Thanks - a real winner!
