MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2013

"These were terrific! The cumin and the hot sauce were just the added touch to make these special. Years ago I had a recipe similar to this, but adding these two ingredients made so much difference. In spite of the long list of ingredients, it goes together fast and easy."
