    UPDATE: OK, I combined - this recipe and another recipe and did use the V-8 and my husband LOVED it. Thanks. This sound really good and I want to try it but actually this is a question - I am snowed in with 16 inches of snow in Washington, DC - all I have is V-8. Any opinions if this will work our not. Thanks.  -  19 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used Frank's Red Hot for the hot sauce. Instead of pickles, I added a few whole pickled green beans, anchovy stuffed olives and a celery stick. Husband loved it. This is the recipe I will continue to use. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!  -  05 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
