  • Just made this recipe tonight. I didn't add the onions, salt, or pepper. I'm glad I tasted the mix before I added the salt--it was extremely salty (but good) on it's own. The recipe overall was great and it would be good hot or cold. Mine was luke-warm and it was terrific as is. Great recipe! - 11/16/10
