    Fabulous! My whole family loved it. I didn't have tomatoes with green chilies so just used diced tomatoes ,I also added a seeded and diced zucchini to it. Served over brown rice was a meal for my veggie daughter and a side dish for the rest of us. Will definitely make again! - 1/28/08

    The dish was very easy and quick to make. Although, 1/2c. serving sounds small, when you add it with brown rice it is very feeling.

    The only problem is that is was a bit to spicy for children.

    I made the recipe using tsp measures for all 3 spices instead of the tbsp. It is very good and very spicy. This is the first time I have used the canned tomatoes with chili peppers.

    I liked this alot. It was pretty spicy even though I used half the amount of cumin. Probably it is due to the Rotel, which appears to have its own spices added in addition to the green chilis.

    YUM!!! No need to add more salt, whatsoever. If anything, look for ways to reduce sodium, such as rinsing chickpeas, using low sodium stock and rinsing/draining ro-tel (though that will change the consistency of the dish somewhat).
