This is one of those comfort food dishes I created out of necessity because we were snowed in and this is what I had on-hand. Feel free to substitute whatever you've got or what you think might taste better, since the whole thing was a desperate measure anyway. I think this one turned out pretty darn good, though, even if I do say so myself. As an added bonus it came out pretty carb-friendly. The hot sauce isn't necessary, although I'd bump up some other spices in its place or this would probably be pretty bland.
