"It wasn't bad, but not my favorite either. Think I would like it better if it had lime juice and cilantro in it."

"My daughter really enjoyed it. I thought it was kind of bland. If anyone has suggestions for something to add to it I would love to hear them."

"My whole family loved this. Modified it a little - didn't have parsley, & used chopped garlic instead of garlic powder. This recipe's a keeper!"
