We love it. But next time I would double it so we have left-overs for lunch the next day! :) Great recipe and the ginger is excellent in it!!

It's so nice to find recipes for 2, so you don't have a ton of leftovers in the frig, but mine turned out very spicy! I used the store brand tomatoes with green chilies, and they certainly weren't mild! Still, it had good flavor. I just read cookswife81's review, and I'm definitely going to squeeze some lime juice on the leftover bowl.
