I think the chile powder and paprika need doubled but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. This was excellent and so much easier to eat. Read More

I made this for my book club friends and did double the chili powder and paprika. The first time I made it I used regular paprika, but then I made the second batch using it, and I'd highly recommend using the smoked paprika!! I also didn't quite use all the dressing. This is delicious, and I'd make it again in a heartbeat! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Adjusting for a potluck....no onions, no hot spices....it was a big hit. I tweaked the dressing a little bit to compensate for having left out the hot sauce. Delicious and definitely a repeat! Read More
