This recipe was AWESOME!!! My family loved it! My oldest daughter didnt even pick out the "green stuff"! The only changes I made to the recipe were to add more garlic, celery and a can of Rotel ...

This was very good and I will make this again. The only things I changed was to use low sodium V8 and I used chicken broth in place of clam juice. I also tossed in about a cup of sliced okra.
