This was very bland and for some reason way to wet. We had to drain the pan because it had so much juice. I was expecting oils because of the cheeses (which there was none) but certainly not a lot of "wetness" Not appetizing at all. We had to put plenty of seasonings on it once we plated it . item not reviewed by moderator and published
As much as I love most of Paula Deen's recipes, this is boring and bland. However, if you make some modifications, it might be good. I just did a taste test before serving it, and it was too bland to serve to anyone. So, I added pepper flakes, more cheese, garlic salt and pepper, and put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes (although I had originally baked it for 40 minutes). Next time, I will substitute sour cream for the yogurt, and hot salsa instead of medium (I had already substituted medium for mild) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really like this Recipe. I made it the first time just like it said it was very good. But now I change it up to suit my taste. For example instead of yogurt I use half sour cream/ricotta- garlic/onion powder - Dill - red pepper flakes- and one lb. of large white shrimp (rough chop. So give it a shot and make it your own. These recipes are not set in stone. But however are a great starting point. HAVE FUN !!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is very good very tasty ,I have been making this for a couple of years now. We love it good job Paula, I wonder how bobby could remake this one item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was expensive to make with 2 pounds of shrimp and a big waste of time. It was terrible, very disappointed. Not spicy as the name says and flavorless. I just threw the recipe in the trash. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had high hopes for this recipe, it sounded so good. Actual dish was flavorless, boring, and not spicy at all. Would not follow this recipe again. Could probably be made better leaving out the half & half and yogurt and using heavy cream instead. Using hot salsa and adding some diced onion would help too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is very easy and actually tasty once you doctor it up. The first time I tried it I was not pleased because it had very little taste. THe second time I made it I used spicy salsa and add my fave seasonings for extra taste. Once that happened this recipe was moved to the top of my kitchen rotation. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVED IT! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously don't waste your time making this recipe. I love Paula but this one definitely misses the mark. I don't know how in the world anyone could honestly give this five stars! I saw the stars and read the first few reviews and thought, "sounds worth it!" So much for reviews! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! Had to give it one star because the site won't let you post zero stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed this recipe, easy to make, but I cut shrimp in half to cut my cost down and my family loves this. rate this 5 stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
