    Super creative recipe and I thought the flavors would be a nice combo. But this just wasn't it. Glad you shared, not a big fan personally.

    These are great! I made these for a church picnic and they went fast. My whole family likes these even the picky 6 year old. I going through a phase where I'm craving spicy foods....this fits the bill.
