  1. Oh man i am eating this as I type and it is phenomenal! My mother always made things when I was a kid and would never recreate it because she did not remember what she did. We never had the same taste twice, I never could understand it. All that said she made something like this once and I have always wanted it again and now after like 15 years I have fulfilled my craving. Thaank you! lol I did not use peppers, and i used a 7 oz pkg of texas honey sweet cornbread. mmmmmmm mmm!!! Thank you for this I will make this for the rest of my life!
  2. I have to admit I cut back on the peppers to one because I was afraid the dish would be too hot. Next time I fix this I will use two peppers. The use of one pepper was like not having one in there at all. This was too good to be soooo simple and quick. I think I loved the sweet flavor most. I'll keep this one in the "one hour or less" cookbook for an easy after work meal. Thanks for sharing!
