    V. Tastey. I'll add more chilli next time xx  -  13 Aug 2016


    This was so quick and easy - and Delicious! I ended up using these minor substitutions: Butter instead of margarine because that is what I had on hand... a bag of frozen (and thawed) pre-cooked cocktail shrimp with tails cut off... Velveeta's mild "Mexican" cheese... Button AND Shitake mushrooms... red onion. WE LOVED IT!  -  11 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. I did thin the sauce with a little half-n-half due my children not liking anything too spicy. They loved it. It was even better the next day.  -  07 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
