O' Wow!

"O Wow!, what do you call this stuff, this is out of this world" says my 4 kids. The second time around, my kids volunteered to make fresh bread if I would make this "secred stuff" again. Yep, I am still "King" around home. I added med-hot salsa, onions, celery , grated carrots and diced green pepper. Sure beats just frying .

Very Flavorful!!

Quick, easy and delicious! The spice of the sausage gives this dish the perfect flavor. I sauteed onions with the meat and used yellow, red and green peppers. I will DEFINITELY be making this again.

Really Great made Diablo

Use hot sausage and a little crushed red pepper and we had the meal of a lifetime. The entire family loved it. It's made in no time at all but they will think that you cooked all day.
