  1. Delicious! But SPICY! My boyfriend loves spicy foods and normally adds spicy sauce with meals. Didn’t have to do that with this, it came out spicier than I like, but I also only like a little spice from time to time. When we make it again we will use 1/4 – 1/2 of the spice on this list. Still very yummy and can’t wait to try again.
