    We enjoyed this very much! I added garlic as mentioned in the instructions. (4 lg. cloves.) Doubled the Cajun spices for more flavor 2nd time. Also good w/ corn and red beans added. I served it over brown rice. 7/31/09 Up the spices w/ beans. Also good w/ mac & cheese. - 9/28/08

  • Yum! I make this last night for dinner. Everyone (hubby, 15 yo daughter, 11 yo son) liked it. I loved it! I made recipe as-is, other than I used ground venison in place of ground turkey... and I upped the veggies just a little. I used 1 T of cajun seasoning and it was plenty spicy!! Thanks! - 3/8/11
