This was a fun recipe. I thought the spices were perfect, but i like my food spicey. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, but the separate ingredients, so I created my own. This recipe was super easy, ans definitely flavorful.

I used tomato puree because that's what I had on hand, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I felt like the cilantro was very overpowering and that it was far too tomatoey. Maybe more spices would help this, along with cutting back on the cilantro.
