    I had this at someones house & loved it. They never gave me the recipe. Glad I found it here. I'll garnish with some avacado slices. I'm saving this & plan to make for company as my husband & son won't eat it. Thanks for sharing. - 8/6/10

  • Loved this recipe! I did add some cucumber, a Haas avocado, more cumin and DAKs southwest seasoning which added to the already delicious meal! Adding the avocado adds approximately 50 calories per serving, but worth it to me! - 3/8/13
