    This is really delicious. We added a little extra flavor by way of some garlic and a little celery salt. I didn't drain the tomatoes and it took a bit more than 3minutes to thicken but the added flavor was worth every minute of it. - 3/10/10

    Very Good
    These were very good. I changed the green pepper to red and added chili powder to make them spicier. I'm assuming the Nutritional Info shown is without the buns even though they are listed in the ingredients? It seems to low to include the buns. - 4/14/09
