    Giving a 4 star rating only because I made some minor changes but it was delicious and I will make it again. Used lemon juice of 1 lemon instead of lime because that's what I had on hand but will increase it. Used 1 tsp onion powder but will increase it. Used 1/4 tsp pepper. Used 1/4 tsp chili powder but will increase it. Used 1 tsp salt but will increase it.  -  07 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
