    I didn’t care for this recipe. It had heat, but it was very bland and boring. The texture was nice, but there just wasn’t much flavor.

    I like it but I usually make the “Jerk Chicken” recipe at the same time and then mix the two together. The chicken compliments it very nicely 🙂

    we love this recipe. not traditional red beans and rice but delicious. Not too salty, not mushy. I add a package of Healthy Choice smoked sausage.
