These were very good- although they are not for the "tender-tongued". My DD & I enjoy spicy and they ARE quite tasty so DH enjoyed too. The only thing I wish to point out is it DOES LOOK like sand on your potatoes.- doesn't taste that way though. We could not stop eating these. Thanks so much! made for ZWT6 and the Xtra Hot Dishes.
