    I'm from south Louisiana, and this recipe is SPICY!!!! It was sooooooooo HOT, we couldn't even eat it! Trust me, DO NOT ADD 2 tsp of cayenne! Please cut down on it. It is an absolutely delicious dish, don't get me wrong, just simply too much cayenne. Next time, we won't be adding but maybe a pinch of cayenne, and maybe a little more cheese. Hope this review helps yall!  -  29 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    very good, will make again. The first reviewer mentioned that the recipe was to spicy.. don't add cayenne, use a cajun seasoning as the recipe calls for..  -  11 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
