I was also burned. Too much olives and it turned out rather soupy. Not worth the time

The was really tasty and not too heavy like casseroles with hamburger in them. I think I might add sliced zucchini to it next time. I served with salsa on top. Thanks for sharing.

I was burned by popping cornmeal after following the directions. Recipe needs to be revised. Cannot possibly follow directions as written. Also the ratio of water to cornmeal seems off. I could not finish the recipe so I cannot review on taste.
