    This was very good. Next time, I will add some cayenne pepper as we like spicy. I also made cheesy grits to complement-cook according to package directions, then add 1/4-1/2 cut part skim mozzarella and a pat of butter. Delish! - 1/27/12

    Don't usually give out 5 stars but this recipe was scumptious! Subst were: 1/2 c. white cooking wine instead of beer & thyme flakes that stayed in. For grits, instant in the Family Sized box. Enjoyed so much, wish there were more leftovers!! Have pictures, if you want, email me. :D - 3/17/10
