    I did use this recipe but I had to take another recipe to compete this one. This mentions no spices. How do you make this w/o spices. I used two teaspoons of cujan mix and salt to taste. Also I added a cup of chopped celery to the onions.

    This is a family favorite now. We've made it many times. I've not altered the recipe in any way. Better than any box-add-meat we've tried.
