We like a tad hot food. Not a light you up buffalo wing or jalapeno taste. This recipe originated from my FASTer Way To Fat Loss meal plan we get once a week. Having the weekly plan show up in my email or in my app helps me plan out my week and be prepared, so we don’t turn to fast food or order the pizza.
As I was following the recipe and I saw how much hot sauce it called for, I cringed. Kenny (maybe me) will never eat this. So I adjusted to fit our tastes. This is what you must do to make a meal plan stick or work into your life. You have to be able to choose what foods you like and what can you substitute?
I know from experience if you don’t like or even enjoy it, YOU WILL QUIT!
In reality, if it’s too hot this meal would not have been a keeper. Kenny made this for his firemen and I added in the 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper. to send the seasonings with him. I was out of this when I made it at home for us, I totally forgot about that. He called to report in,”This was way hotter!!! But still good.”
