    It was very good... had to add a little more liquid but the taste as very nice.  -  10 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    As creamy as store bought. Instead of the oven for roasting I used a frying pan. High heat until skin is blacken, about 10 minutes  -  25 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
