    I found this recipe very bland. I pumped it up with cumin and red pepper flakes. I think it is a good base for whatever flavors you want to add.

    Hi Chrissy, thanks for this tasty recipe with its short ingredient list and easy to follow instructions. I made up a batch to take for lunches this week and sprinkled some sauteed mushrooms and green onions on the top. Yummy! And even yummier the next day! Next time might add a bit of chili powder.
