Recipe by Kelly M.

Delicious, quick and easy. If you like it spicier, add more cayenne or use a hot curry powder.

fantastic couscous -- sure beats the bland recipe suggested on the container. i added another dash of cayenne since i like my food spicy, and it was the perfect temperature. what an explosion of flavours in my mouth! inspiration: i went searching supercook.com for a spiced couscous recipe using the ingredients i had on hand, after rachel ray getting me in the mood for a similar dish she cooked on her show this morning. kelly, you saved the day! thank you!
