"This was good although I would leave the cinnamon out also or maybe not use as much. It was overpowering. I would make it again but with less tomatoes as my husband can't eat them that much. The kids ate them in tortillas with sour cream and cheese. The best part was how quick and easy it was!"

"I really like the cinnamon in it! I added a quarter of a head of green cabbage (chopped) with the onions and that tasted yummy. I served it on brown rice; I would bump up the spices if I did that again. My husband liked it in a flour tortilla with chedder cheese and some salsa.
