"My wife and I like this recipe a lot and make it every few months. That said, I do have to agree that it comes out pretty runny even after that last thickening step. If anyone has ideas for dealing with that, I'd love to hear them."

"Sorry all, but I must agree with Harley and trance. The photo looks gross, and just reading the ingredients made me want to hurl. Stupidly, I tried it anyway thinking it might not be that bad. I was wrong. Between the nasty sauce, all that broth, and the sour cream, it was a bland, gluey, colorless, tasteless mess. Waste of time, money, and ingredients. I should have followed my instincts and passed. I didn't think Harley's review was rude, just condescending, BTW, but I did feel all the snarky rebukes WERE rude, as well as unnecessary. Trance and I are just being honest with our description of the way we experienced the recipe, not the choice of the cook to use canned products. The combination of these ingredients simply didn't work, and the result was awful. To each his own. That's what reviews are for foljs- to relate your own experience with the recipe redults, not each other. Lighten up!"

"This recipe has too much liquid even with the thickening step (last thing you do). Sorry, but a dry-rub and roasted or grilled pork recipe like Mexican-style Carnitas is better for burritos than this gloppy mess. (just look at the picture) I was very disappointed."

"It was pretty good. I do not like olives so did not put them in but I did add a little hot sauce to spice things up a little bit. It just tastes like it needs some hotness to it."
