    The general experience was OK, however it lacked a kick, so I ended up with adding quite a volume of sauces at side. Next time I would double cumin and I would add a little bit chilli.  -  31 Aug 2016


    Very tasty, had these with our BBQ and also done under the grill for dinners.  -  02 Jun 2014


    Perfect. Other than adding some fresh, minced garlic to the marinade, I made this exactly as written. Beautiful, delicious, and oozing with simple, fresh, Mexican flavors. Some reviewers thought this was tasteless--not for us and what I chose to serve this with--Mexican Rice III and Best Black Beans, the combination of which made for a meal I'd be proud to serve to anyone!  -  15 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
