I agree this is a bit heavy on the tomato. I will cut back or cut out the tomato paste next time. I halved the recipe and it still makes a huge amount. We liked it ok. Nothing great but easy to make and filling.

Apple Crisp IV
Made this for a party and they loved it. We had it cold the next day and it was even better after sitting for awhile. For those like me who dont know what 2 quarts of apples is... I used 8 med Granny Smith and it was perfect. Followed other recommendations to use less flour and more cinammon. I let the sliced apples sit in a little lemon juice to creat a sauce and poured this over the apples before adding topping and it was not dry at all. I use only about 1/4 of the topping to put a thin layer in the bottom of the 9X13 pan and the rest on top and it turned out great!! Ive used store bought topping mix in the past but no more. This will be a "go to" recipe in my box. Thanks

Fajita Marinade I
This is an excellent marinade. We loved that it has a little zing to it with the cayenne pepper. We didnt have the liquid smoke but it was still great. I brushed it on some large portobella caps and let sit for 10 minutes before grilling and it make fantastic vegetarian fajitas.
