My family loves this recipe, it's great! Couple of ingredients that I skipped were creole seasoning, zucchini, yellow squash. I only use 1 habanero (6-8 servings) because if you use 4 of them it will be too hot! (Seriously, one is enough). I also added 2 cups of water in addition to 3 cups of chicken broth. Again, thanks for the wonderful recipe.
