I made this and my husband loved it except that it was a little thin. Next time I will hold off on a little bit of the water, but the flavor was great! Thanks for sharing!

This was easy to make, the spices deffinatly gave it a great flavor. I have only made it once and it came out a little thin, next time i will hold off on 1/2 of the water until the end. But overall it was great.
