I think this is my favorite recipe that I have gotten from anyone. I do take it easy on the spicy stuff since I have small children that do not enjoy the spicy even thought its not that spicy. Thank you so much for sharing

This is really, really, good! Sometimes I'll look at a recipe and just know it will be delicious; other times I'm a bit skeptical,but willing to give it a go. I was a bit iffy on this one. What a pleasant surprise. I followed the recipe straight down the line, but used garlic powder, because I was out of fresh. My BF loved it, too!
