    Used different ingredients. This was GREAT! It took a little while to do but well worth the time. I added garlic and soured cream. The soured cream is a must. It made a delicious rich sauce. Without it dish was a little dry. Thought I made enough for leftovers, -- wrong, all gone!  -  15 Sep 2008


    Very good and easy-to-make recipe. However I only used half a teaspoon of chilli instead of a whole tablespoon, and it was almost more than enough! I also added the sour cream and some sweet corn.  -  26 Jun 2010


    Used different ingredients. I love this recipe! It's so fast and easy, not to mention colourful and delicious! The only modifications I make are using red peppers instead of green, adding garlic and topping it off with melted mozzarella cheese. Otherwise it's perfect.  -  15 Sep 2008
