Very good, but too salty, Member guangui

I loved this recipe, as it is very simple and tasty. I have done it twice, but the second time I changed it a little. As is it is too salty, and I like salty things. So, the second time I used a pinch of salt, also added a pinch of cayenne pepper. Instead of bacon fat I used bacon (3 slices diced), and mixed green and red peppers. Second time it tasted so much better. Try this recipe, and adjust as you see fit.
