Kids didn't find this too spicy but everyone is a bit different. Of most importance - make sure EVERYTHING is premeasured out before you start cooking or you will be stressed.

This was rather easy to prepare and had a nice flavor. It didn't have a WOW factor but I can see how it would be a good choice for children (or maybe grandchildren).
