    Very nice recipe thank you! Gotta season to taste. I added a bit more garlic, cumin and parsley...and make sure you don't over-water the sauce.

    Have to be honest this did not work for me. I thought it would be more flavorful but it's not. Made as directed. It is easy to make. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.
