"Very good, just as written. 2nd time, I left out the mustard and used curry powder--still incredibly good with those apples, etc.! Paula does need to know that the correct term for Jack isn't 'made a noise'--it's, "Oops! I stepped on a frog!" Kids love that one--which my old man came up with. Of course, this is just for boys--everyone knows southe"

"Just ok. In Texas, we usually just go either red OR green; not both. I didn't think this used either of the chiles to their full potential. When I make green enchiladas, I use the green chiles with lots of onions. With red, I make my own sauce using a frozen red chile & some dried chiles--what kind I'll never tell--& they come out killer--the best"

"I make mine mostly like this, except I use spicy V-8 & wasabi powder (So yes, Stefani, you can use wasabi & it tastes great!) Cholula with garlic is great too. Can't wait to try this with the sherry vinegar--one of my favorites!"

"Ha ha ha ha! If you think this is good on bread, try tossing your favorite root veggies in it and roasting. I use it on things like zuchini & squash too. Even better with the smoky taste the veggies get from roasting. I also use it on fish and to marinate chicken--delish! Sometimes add asparagus to it with a nice squeeze of lemon or some lemon pep"

"Finally found a way to use up the sumac I bought! I did scale it back as suggested in other reviews. The mix of spices here--loved it! Have made it just as regular kebabs without grinding the meat & it was great too! Another JO hit out of the park!"

"Meh. Not one of Ina's best. (No biggie with all the five star recipes she cranks out!) Made it again leaving the rosemary, wine & vinegar out and adding a savory middle eastern spice I use (cumin will also work). Took it over the top! Hubbie scarfed it so fast thought I'd need the heimlich! Think I will add just a little red pepper flake next time"

Monday, May 6, 2013 on

"Very good--close to my own, though I often just use bacon. But the addition of a bit of a certain cheese -not parmesan, sorry- would take this over the top. The secret will be pried from my cold, dead hands! Mwahahaha!"

"Used leftover green chile pork & lots of onion. Seasoned with extra green chile, cabrito, cumin & MEXICAN oregano (never use anything else!). Baked @ 400 without water bath, topped with 2% sharp cheddar--YUM! Love Ree's out-of-the-box recipe ideas!"

"I'd never have thought of making this with butterscotch chips! I had some in the freezer, so I whipped it up, and man! The Neelys are geniuses! I used Five Spice in place of the cinnamon and allspice the second time, and liked it even better! Way to go, Neelys! "

"I'd been looking for a go to shortbread recipe, and this has been it. I've also made it with pecans (use vanilla instead of the almond extract and it was even better. To: mail_11764840, the way to firm up the soft center is go ahead and make your foil form for the shortbread in the pan. Then put the skillet on one of the SMALL burners on your stov"
