I'd eat this again but maybe with a little less corn and some brown rice on the side.

Perfect meal for any day of the week 5 stars all the way from me to you.

I actually didn't add the mint cause I didn't want any minty taste otherwise ingridents were good.

Aniya Marquina

Scrumptious and simple meal thanks for sharing it.

Not my personal favorite but it wasn't bad.

Man you know I tossed the whole damn parmesan cheese bag on this HAHA way too big of a cheese lover to only put 1/4.

Azalea Labhart

Would be a little careful on the spices or it can be too salty for people other than that it was delicious.

Ariyah Santago
