    My husband thought it was very tasty. He even said he would like to have it again. It was very easy to prepare. I also thought it was very good.

    My family loved this recipe so much that there weren't any left overs! We used jalapeno smoked turkey sausage for added zip!

    Of course I would make this again,excellent for a quick dinner, ingredients are simple, comes together fast. I did double the recipe and did. It use celery but for a little zing I added a chopped poblano pepper. Actually this recipe is so easy you could add or subtract ingredients. The base is there.

    This is a good and simple recipe. I usually add some grated cheddar on top towards the end. Great flavor!

    I substitute a whole green pepper in place of the onion & celery. This is a weeknight favorite!
