This came out incredible! I can't believe how tasty this is. Went without blackening seasoning... since we didn't have any but is still great. Put it on top of some lettuce and totally set! Read More

I have made this recipe twice now. The first time I followed the recipe and the result was good. For the second time I used three shallots for the onions and added two strips of bacon. During the final phase I covered the dish and it allowed the bell peppers to cook down a little. This made this good recipe even more nuanced. Read More

This was delicious and very easy to make! We used ground bison because that's what Kroger had but I'm sure any lean ground meat would be great. We mostly kept the same spices subbing a Creole seasoning and a little of Emeril's seasoning and some pepper for the Blackened seasoning. We served it over mixed greens as well. As written the recipe makes a good amount 2 dinners and 3 lunch portions. Read More
