    Delicious!! I went a little heavy on the chili powder and added a bit of cayenne too so it had quite a kick but I absolutely loved it! And so did my seven year old who thinks he hates squash, onions and tomatoes!! - 8/10/11

  • I made this last night and i will never make it again. It was lousy. The green beans ruined it! I tasted as i was making it and i felt it needed more pizzaz...like more garlice, more spices, was pretty bland and the beans gave it a real pasty bland taste. Needs serious doctoring and spicing. - 6/13/13
