Very good. I didn't have bell pepper, so I didn't add any. A nice recipe!

Easy to make, lots of flavor. I added a very little chili powder and cayenne.

5 stars! Very easy to make. I didn't have fresh or canned tomatoes so I used Rotel tomatoes. Helped spice it up a bit and was very good. Don't leave out the cumin, that's what makes it so wonderful.
