I thought this tasted very good. I wish i could give it a 4.5, since it tasted great at the end. I gave it a 4, because I pretty much followed the recipe (minus the meat, since we don't like to eat too much meat in this house, and the review says it can be made w/o meat and still taste good). When it was done, it had some good base taste, but was really really really needing spices. Usually if I have to just add a few extra spices, I give it a 5. But this time, I felt like I had to take a lot more time adding more, to make it taste really good. OK, what I did: I used some chicken broth instead of water (i had some leftover broth lying in the fridge). I added extra fresh garlic. I put in extra chili pepper. I put in extra mango & cilantro. I had to add extra salt & pepper, garlic powder. I added some lemon juice and cumin. I really felt it needed all of the extra spices. But the end product, after all these additions, was a very yummy & healthy dinner. I used fresh made black beans. And I served it on top of cooked barley. I will definitely do this recipe again.
