I have used this recipe several times and it never disappoints. I like to use shrimp stock instead of water to make the recipe. Some chopped bell peppers do add to the dish also. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Was Delicious!!!!!! made it for a pot everyone loved it. I added more cayenne for extra spiciness. The rice was under done for me though. never been too successful with rice so I think next time cook the rice on the side to add later but one of my favorite recipes!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow that was too delicious, I thought about licking the plate. I was afraid it would be spicy and it wasn't. Only bad thing is that I'm on a diet and I can't stop eating it. You've done it again Paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
