  • “I cooked it as directed except I left out the jalapenos.It turned out really good!We loved the blend of flavors and even thought it might be good with a little coconut.”

  • “I cooked this just how it was described but I really didn’t like it.The ingredients just didn’t blend well.”

  • “This really was delicous!! My whole family enjoyed it (we didn’t find it too hot) I served it with Mashed Potato Pie #24217, fresh green beans and carrots. YUM!! “

  • “VERY delicious! I probably wouldn’t classify it as hot and spicy (for our tastes at least!) but it really was wonderful and will definately be made again! I served this with garlic potatoes and it made for a delish dinner, thanks for posting! Oh, and while I halved the recipe for the two of us I still used 6 or 7 cloves of garlic, and it wasn’t too much at all!”
