I wish I could rate this recipe higher but it just did not work out for us. There was nothing wrong with it and I followed the directions exactly. I like all of the ingredients so it wasn't a matter of not liking it because of that. I honestly do not know. My husband said it was a little too spicy and for me I think it might have been the diced tomatoes in it. It was creamy and gooey just like potatoes should be, we just didn't care too much for it. I am sorry for the 3 stars and I really had to wrestle with myself as to whether I should rate it or not but since I picked it for PAC6 I figured I better. You are still one of my favorite Zaar chefs!!!!!
