Made this for our Memorial day BBQ and everyone liked it. I started out making it close to the recipe, but found it pretty bland. I changed it by using more lime juice, olive oil-just eyeballed it, a little reserved starchy pasta water, parsley instead of cilantro since I don't like it, green onion, and less cumin since one of my friends doesn't like it. I let it sit for a couple of hours and it was still a little bland and the chili powder was a little overpowering. I added more lime juice, touch more olive oil, quite a bit more salt, black pepper, hot sauce, and a sprinkle of taco seasoning since I had a packet open. It was better but still a little blander than I would prefer - but I left it that way since my friends can't all do spicy. To make it just for us in the future I'll add minced jalapeno, some cubed pepper jack cheese, more hot sauce, use less chili powder (might try a little chipotle chili powder), and cayenne pepper. It just seemed to be missing something...maybe for me it was spicy heat.
