I love this recipe!! But why 4 stars and not 5 you ask - well because 1 tsp of black pepper is just too much for me to handle, and 2 tsp of salt is overkill as well. My husband has made this 3 times now, and the last two he scaled back the pepper to 1/4 tsp. He also put far less salt in the second also. The third time he added a little more salt than attempt number two, and now it's flavorful without being a spice overkill. We also skip the cilantro (I don't like it). Hubby also adds the raisins in last as he doesn't like them turning back into grapes. I also requested last time that he increase the amount of toasted almonds. The quantity is enough for us to both pig out at dinner, our daughters pick at and whine about their servings, and still have 2 more "pig out" size portions left for me to consume the next day instead of a normal breakfast and lunch - and then I get dirty looks for not leaving him any. :D
