MY REVIEW

"This was really good. The whole family enjoyed, even my son who doesn't usually like spicy food."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 29, 2011

"I actually baked this in the oven instead of grilling. It has a lot of good flavor and using the extra sauce definitely gives it a lot of spice! I wish I had remembered to use the honey-roasted peanuts because they could have cooled it down a bit."
