    Absolutely delicious. I made a mistake when I did it and put slightly too much chili in it.  -  09 Sep 2012


    Wonderful recipe but if your not a chilli lover do not put amount in as any cook knows that's way to much chilli for some body who doesn't love heat but it was a amazing hit  -  18 Feb 2015


    I have now made this recipe 3-4 time. It's delicious and very quick to make. It's been a hit with my family too, even my 10year old nephew.  -  22 Jan 2014
