Member Comments About this Recipe
"I loved this recipe. Very yummy! Not too spicy. My husband is not a big fan of spicy food and he really liked it. I had a little bit of red, green and yellow peppers, so I did all three instead of just the green peppers and it was very pretty, as well. Great over brown rice!" -- LADYBUCKMASTER
"This was really good. The only ingredient I did not have was chili sauce, so I used a little chili oil and a little tabasco sauce. Yummy over white rice!" -- LADYBUG0147
"Very good dish! My daughter didn't care for it, but I think it might have been a tad bit too spicy for her. Just FYI, because I didn't know where to find it....Chili Sauce is over by the Ketchup :)" -- BLUEBABYMOMMA
