    I've made this recipe countless times for myself and for guests. It's always a big hit! It's really awesome with some heat! I use habanero cheddar instead of regular and also add some chilli peppers in the sauce.

    Can I use frozen mussels for this? And if yes, would it be the same amount or more?

    That should be fine, and the amount would remain the same.
