"This recipe was really easy and really yummy. I agree with the person who wanted "more" and I'll probably add more spices, like black pepper, chipotle, red pepper, time. I did use Cilantro instead of parsley and I think that made it a little more flavorful. After draining, you could use the juices to make a gravy, I suppose; might be good!"

"For some reason it just seemed too plain and I even added a green pepper to it. Not bad just not very flavorful."
