    It really is so good and easy! The left overs get a bit thick, but heat up nicely. Will definitely make it again. - 8/16/08

    Um. This was disgusting. I don't know how you were able to eat it. I followed all the directions on the spicing and it was INEDIBLE. Wayyyy too spicy, we had to throw it all out. - 2/3/12
