  1. Planning on making this soon, but thrown off on ingredients mentioned when preparing, but not listed in the ingredients section. You mention garlic, is this garlic powder or actual garlic and how much? Second, you mention "seasoning" is this something specific (besides salt & pepper mentioned)?
