green bell peppers, seeded and cubed
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
salt and pepper to taste
This was soooo delicious! Left out the onions, reduced recipe for just me and hubby by using 1 can tomatoes, 4 eggs, and 1/2 large green pepper. Also used 1/2 hot Hungarian paprika and 1/2 sweet, gave it a great twist! To reduce cooking time, simmered at high temperature to remove tomato juice. Lastly, melted cheddar on top. Soooooooooo good! Don't miss the meat at all!
I found this recipe very bland, even though I used loads of paprika. It is very quick and easy and I would try it again if anyone suggested any other spices or ingredients that would make it more interesting. I used courgettes, red peppers and mushrooms as I like a few vegetables in terms of colour and taste
So good - it's even better as a leftover.
This is so good. Very flavorful and hearty and even better the next day. Make sure to choose a really flavorful rye, I like one with lots of caraway to go with this recipe.
Yum! Also great for leftovers. Will definitely make again
This is a great dish, easy and very yummy!
This is really tasty and easy to make. I used smoked paprika, which I thought added a lot of the flavor.
I wasn't sure which paprika to use, so I used Hugarian paprika and mixed it with sweet paprika, like another reviewer recommended. Wowee! The Hungarian paprika gave it quite a kick. It was too hot for my husband to eat!
I loved the flavors in this recipe and thought it was different and delicious, but next time, I'll definitely stay away from the hot paprika!
