"Very good tasting but it seemed sort of on the line of a spaghetti sauce. Will make it again though."

"I made this exactly as the recipe says and it turned out great! It's a little spicy but not too much or too little, it's just right. I served it with a salad and cheese biscuits. Excellent meal."
