Every once in awhile, you come across a recipe that makes you want to stand up and applaud after the meal is over. This is one of those recipes. I followed the recipe as written. Yes, it is potent. It does have a definite kick. If dinner guests shy away from spicy foods, skip the cayenne. All in all, it was fantastic! For the entire meal, it was both of us making the yummy sound. Definite keeper!!
