Pass congratulations onto your boyfriend Sugarpea, while not the tastiest dish I've ever eaten it sure was good for something with two minutes preparation time! I used a 'Zaar Taco Seasoning recipe (#72663) with fresh ground chilis rather than pre-bought and that gave it some real kick. In the hotter form Would make a good start to a Friday night football game! Something that isn't shown on the directions is stirring every five minutes or so is really required with this sort of recipe to develop the flavour and to avoid sticking. Also the cooking time of ten minutes is very optimistic and it will more likely take thrity minutes over a low heat, it is also worth reducing the heat from medium low to very low gradually as the amount of liquid reduces.
Pretty tasty side dish, everyone at work liked it during our pot luck.
I liked the recipe for it's simplicity, taste was 3 1/5 stars. I would add a jalapeno or something to spice it up a little and fresh cilantro or parsley would taste good a s well!
