Hands down, this is a 5 star meal!!! You have the freedom of whipping it up with any & all of your favorite vegetables to custom design a meal that the whole family will enjoy. I added thinly sliced carrots, snow peas, mushrooms & broccoli and used about a pound of shrimp instead of the 12 oz pkg. I had so many veggies, that I quadrupled the sauce, and it was just perfect. My parents and I LOVED it. My mom even asked me to pack up a bit of the leftovers for her so she could take some to work the next day and make her coworkers jealous! My husband doesn't like shrimp, so for him, I reserved some of the veggies and the sauce beforehand, and in a separate skillet, browned some cut up chicken with the onions, garlic & oil, then threw in the veggies & sauce. It thickened up in less than 30 seconds since it was a smaller portion. He also gave it a 5 star review! They all thought the spiciness was just perfect! It was just enough to get you to the point where your nose starts running a little bit, but not enough to make your tongue burn so much that you can't even enjoy the actual flavor of the food. And for those of us who like spicy food, (not flaming-my-tongue-is-swollen-&-can't-taste-anything spiciness) we all know that the "sweet spot" in spiciness is where your nose starts running but your tongue is still in tact. ;) I tasted it with the chicken too and I loved it. Can't wait to try it again with pork, and maybe even beef. This recipe will definitely be gobbled up!
