I was really ready to love this, and like other reviewers, found it sort of underwhelming. I love how easy it was, but then I just spent 30 mins. tweaking the spices to try to bring it to "really good," so the time savings wasn't as great as I'd hoped :-) Here's what I added in the end, to make it tastier (I'm hoping that by tomorrow maybe it'll taste great!): more salt and pepper, 2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp white pepper, lime juice (1/2 lime), 2 T sugar (may sound crazy, but it brings out the flavor without actually making it sweet), a pinch of chili powder, and a dash of cayenne (jalapenos would have been good instead too). The cayenne is really to keep my boyfriend from eating too much of it at once, plus to give it a little kick since it wasn't spicy at all.... and I'm not someone who likes my food super-spicy. I'll probably make it again with these revisions- just be prepared to doctor it up some before you serve it.
