I too have been making these for years. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because I always add a bunch of other spices. As others mentioned, the porcupines can be bland without spices. Oregano, parsley, basil, poultry seasoning, garlic powder etc.

I've been making this for several years...hubby thinks it's a little bland but the rest of us love it! I put mine in the crockpot on high for 3 hours.

Although my kids have always loved this dish my husband thought it was too bland. To please him I always add a little worcester sauce to the soup/water mixture for just a little kick. EVERYONE likes it now!
