MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 19, 2011

Overall I thought this was really good. While being on a diet it is nice to have good food. I added a bit more heat with some Red Pepper Flakes and added black beans for some extra protein which paired well with this dish, I also added some kale for extra nutrients. Easy dish to make your own with substitutions.
