About this recipe: I use this to spice up simple dishes, like serving it with chicken breasts and roasted vegetables! The thing about this is that you can add or subtract things you don't like. For example, if you want it really spicy, bump up the Tabasco; if you hate black pepper, leave it out. It should still turn out tasty!
