"I have made this twice. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe and it was very good. The second time I used chorizo sausage and eliminated the cumin and chili powder and I thought it was even better. My friend thought I should have left in the spices plus the spicier sausage but then again, he is Mexican and likes a LOT of kick!"
