This recipe is from Food Network's Guy Feiri. I had this at his restaurant, Johnny Garlic's and loved it. I made it at home last night and it tasted exactly the same! It is spicey! I only put in 1 1/2 peppers and it was not as spicey as it was at the restaurant, but perfect. It is an easy recipe to make!
