    i thought this recipe was so good i've made it once a week for three weeks already! my only change would be to halve the cayenne... it was VERY hot with one teaspoon! it's so yummy & easy to make, you just have to try it. - 11/27/07

    This was really delicious and easy to make! I used a teaspoon of the cayenne pepper and it was a little too spicy for us. (We love hot food too!) I think I would cut the amount in half. - 6/20/07

    Thsi way so easy and tasty even without the cliantro and the avocado. I just did not have them in the house. I also omitted the jalepeno since my 3 year old would be eating it. Very tasty. - 4/15/07

  • Adjusted the cayenne down to half and was just perfect for the right amount of heat. Tasty and light meal. Excellent for a hot summer day. - 8/19/13
