    Definitely a family favorite moving forward! I didn't have cajun spice mix, so I made my own with Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning and some ground red pepper. A little too spicy for the kids, but delicious! - 1/6/12

    This was not good at all. No flavor. I was born and raised a coonass so when I see anything saying Cajun I don't expect much. But this looked good from the recipe. Thought I'd try it, now I know to go with my instincts on the things that say Cajun. By the way I do love this website. - 10/17/12

  • Substituted fat free half and half since I didn't have evaporated skim. I added an extra 1/2 c water and it was pretty creamy. My family loved it! - 1/14/12
