This I made for dinner tonight. I have to admit I added a few more spices. Cajun seasoning and cumin. It was good

I made this to go with tacos and quesadilla's this weekend and was very pleased with the flavor. A great side for a mexican themed meal. Thank you very much! :)

it was not too bad.. I added more water + chicken boullion so that it would remain soupy, but then the flavor was a bit bland. I would suggest adding a can of tomato sauce as well.
