We loved this! Even my horribly picky 3 1/2 yr old. We didn't have any cumin so I just used the chili powder and added some pepper and a touch of garlic powder. I also didn't have boneless skinless chicken so I just boiled 2 pieces of chicken and stredded the meat. Really enjoyed this one. We'll be having it many more times! Thanks!
