This was nice but I think lime juice and vinegar is preferable to lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice just didn't seem to be nearly enough. Some oregano would have been tasty too. This was just too mildly flavored for me. I did only add a teaspoon of chili powder, maybe more would have improved this. I also added small, sweet grape tomatoes instead of dicing a whole one. Good base, just needs to be flavored up a bit more. Thanks!

I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
