      NO…UGH! This recipe is missing the Bang! There needs to be some kick… not just sweet. Must have some sriracha added to the sauce or something else to add some heat. Sorry, this was a “Fail” recipe for me.

    14. Staci says

      My family loves this recipe! We have some picky eaters, especially when it comes to spice. So, I just leave out the crushed red pepper flakes. It still has a tiny kick, even without. This has become a family favorite. Even my two year old, and my extremely picky niece love it!
