Very delicious! I made this dish by the recipe, but at the end I added chopped fresh tomato which brightened up this already bright dish. This is an easy dish to be creative with. My husband who said he didn't like quinoa, enjoyed this recipe."

We loved this recipe! However, due to lack of exact ingredients, I had to modify the recipe. I used two (2) pounds of ground beef, one (1) pound of ground pork. I didn't have bread crumbs, so I toasted three pieces of white bread (one crust) in the oven and crumbled them in the food processor while I sauteed the onions/garlic. I used about 1/4 cu"

Excelente! As suggested in other reviews, I added an additional jalapeno and a bit of cumin for additional zing. I topped with avocado, no lettuce. Our locally grown tomatoes are in the height of season right now, so the Pico de Gallo was really good! "

I've never made the Essence spice blend before, and I'm totally addicted to it now. I'm planning to use it on fish, shrimp and chicken again in the future. "

I loved this recipe as a basis for my variation. I did not use Ancho Chiles, just chicken broth. Instead of red chilies, I added New Mexico red chili powder while sauteing the veggies and spices. I used 1 cup of Trader Joe's roasted corn. I added about 3/4 cup of cooked rice and a can of drained black beans. I added sea salt, and at the end, I ad...
