    we actually liked this recipe! i loved how "quick" and convenient it was so it was nice to put it together so easily on a busy night - as for flavor yeah it was lacking slightly so i just added some pepper and also dried cilantro to give it extra zing - otherwise we loved it!

    My family did not like this. It was too bland.
