    1 tablespoon paprika

    Great, my hubby and I love it. I selected a salad and steamed okra as a side dish. Wonderfully good. Thanks for sharing. - 4/10/13

    Very Good
    This was very good. I spiced it quite a bit by adding more cayenne and Sriracha sauce, and added a clove of garlic in addition to the garlic powder. Although I needed more stock than 2 cups, maybe 4 cups total, but that may be from omitting the tomatoes in the recipe as I didn't have any on hand. - 9/25/11
