    Worchester sauce is NOT vegetarian! Do not make these for the vegetarian in your life.
    This recipe is easy, but lacks flavor. Try adding your favorite flavor sources, like onions and garlic. To make it really flavorful with no effort, just add chili seasoned beans instead of the plain ones.

  • Very Good
    I really enjoyed this but I did add some chopped fresh coriander/cilantro leaves and cumin for more flavour. Easy and quick to prepare. Try it with some herbs you like mixed in. - 6/4/08
