  • Loved this recipe and will use it often

  • My family loved this recipe. I have forwarded it to several friends. Instead of Italian salad dressing, we seasoned the meat with ground cumin.

  • Great recipe. I made it for dinner Saturday and again for lunch on Sunday. I did make a few changes though... cut out the pepper (don't like them), used Newman's Own oil & vinegar dressing for the marinade (can't have sugar), added green onions and bacon. Also not quite sure about the Cajun spices. But over all if I didn't see your recipe I wouldn't have made it.

  • Great recipe! I went very light on the cajun seasoning and used a jack/cheddar mix. Very yummy!
