    I absolutely loved this for dinner. I did add Turkey polska kielbasa, and halved the recipe(we are only a fam of three). Just the right amount of spice..was impressed my anti-okra fiance' ate his okra and didn't complain :-) A real winner. - 10/18/10

    I really liked this recipe. I love heat so I spiced it up some with more creole seasoning and some cayenne pepper. I also added some chicken sausage from Aldi to round it out. Will def make again!! - 5/21/20
