  • O.K.
    I made some changes in the protein. While we like spicy food, I cut the cayenne and black pepper in half and it was still too spicy for us. I wonder if the author meant tsp. and not tbsp. - 1/14/18

    I now make this recipe at least once a month... It's phenomenal, pretty quick (as long as you cut everything up in advance) and does great for lunches at work the next day! A day later the flavors have a chance to meld and it's even better! I do cut back on the pepper a little for the kids though. - 1/20/11

  • Very Good
    when cooking it i added cajun seasoning instead of cayenne pepper for more flavor as i wanted a little less heat. i will definitely be making this again. - 1/7/09

    I really liked this a lot and it was easy to get the ingredients and make. I will cut down on the pepper next time just because the kids had a hard time with the heat, but for adults I like the amount of heat. - 11/19/08
