    Very Good! I cut the salt to almost nothing and added 3/4 t of cumin and cilantro, next time I will increase both of these and will try using salsa instead of tomato sauce to add a bit more flavor. Thank you for sharing! - 3/21/11

    Very good. I add a bit of chopped onion and some chili powder or taco seasoning for a bit more flavour. - 8/29/20
