"This was all right. Could use a flavor oomph. So add chili powder, salt, and pepper at will."
"I don't often follow recipe, but this sounded too good to resist. It will be a family favorite for now on! We all loved it!"
"This was very good! It definitely had a nice southwestern flavor. Personally, I like a bit more of a kick, so I'd probably add some chili powder to mine next time, but my husband and 12 year old son liked it as is. It was great for a cold day's lunch!"
