  1. Tried this recipe today, had to make a few tweaks.

    1. I don’t know what a “blazer” is, I just used a deep cast iron skillet.

    2. I used an instant pot to make the potatoes. Boiling would work just as well.

    3. I also diced an onion to add into the skillet, and it made the dish taste very nice.

    4. I used the green bell pepper, and it was a nice addition.

    5. You do not need a cup of chicken stock. Maybe a quarter cup at most.

    Overall, this recipe was easy and very tasty. My wife and I enjoyed it greatly.
