We have just finished a wonderful Sunday brunch! This recipe is so easy the instructions are clear and the finished product is super. I used a whole jalapeno and next time will use 2 cloves of garlic However the recipe is just fine the way it is. I used large shrimp, as suggested in the recipe, Iand served it with hot buttered biscuits and a few slices of left over browned potatoes Thanks and good luck in the contest
