      I registered just to post on this recipe.

      This is AMAZING! I wasn't sure, but I figured I'd give it a shot. My husband and I are in LOVE. We ate it for days until it ran out...and now we are going ot make more today! It's cheap and very filling. It's almost like a gumbo, in my opinion. LOVE IT! Yummy.
