  1. 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.:wub:

  2. I have to run EVERY NEW RECIPE by my husband. He thinks this would be good over noodles. Can’t wait to try it!
