    Had a very good flavor and was excellent as a side dish. I might try and up the spice to more nostril-searing levels next time, though. - 1/7/09

    I make a recipe almost identical to this (minus the chilis) and we all really love it. It's hearty, filling, and very healthy. It easily feeds my family of 4 as the main dish with some left over for the next day's lunch. Try it, you'll like it! - 11/4/08

    Thank you for your positive comment. The extra heat you get with the chilies is very nice. My family loves it :)
