We normally love this type of meal, but this was just awful. I followed the recipe exactly and it just did not work for my family.

MY REVIEW

This recipe was very easy to make, however, the taste was lacking for me. I thought it was a little bland. Probably won't be making this one again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 30, 2012

This was so spicy it was inedible. I was so disappointed. I thought about it all day while it was cooking and then it was awful. Way, way too much paprika.
