      I guess it was a hung jury on whether it should be 4 or 5 stars. While I LOVED it, my hubby just gave it a "really good, but not wonderfully fantastic." (and he has given some recipes the 'wonderfully fantastic' label. I made a few changes though. No onion, no bacon. And, I didn't really measure the spices, just went by color and feel, so I'm not sure if my version was spicier or not as spicy as the original. Either way, I WILL cook this again!
