  • This was easy and very tasty; I also had almost everything on hand. I skipped the cilantro because I didn't have it, and just added some extra cumin and some lime juice. I also added more jalapeno. It was good the first day, and keeps really well. I will be making this again. - 6/13/11

  • I find a lot of recipes I like but I find very few that I print and expect to use many times. This is one of the few, full of ingredients I always have on hand but in a combination I hadn't thought of! - 6/21/10
