This was GREAT and so easy, my 7 year old loved it also! I used Chili Powder and crushed red pepper instead of creole and chose not to use the butter. Once it was done I drizzled it with some of the Lemon Juice. WONDERFUL!!

Great recipe. Fast and easy! I added some chopped roma tomatoes to give it a little more color.
