This almost inside out recipe caught my eye. I'm glad I tried it, but equally glad that I read reviews first. I had to really modify based on other reviewers stating..."lack of salt and bland". I highly suggest using chicken stock instead of water to fix this. That alone would probably make it acceptable, but I did much more. I keep homemade " mini cubes" of pureed, canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in my freezer since they are very spicy and I don't want to waste a can when I need to add a little punch to something. I tossed one into the sauce. I reduced sauce. I did this by eyeing measurements- approx. 2 1/2 cups stock and about 3/4 can tomato sauce. No sugar. Less Cumin. 2 TB flour added to browned meat thickened the sauce just right. Added fresh minced garlic & cilantro, and minced white onion to meat before browning. Tossed in a pinch of kosher salt. Used a mix of American and Colby Jack Cheese. Pretty much followed the remaining general preparation of this recipe as written and topped with green onion. It made a great meal and I'll make it again with these same changes.
