Not bad but needed a little something more. I liked adding salsa for a bit more flavor. I would make this again but include some changes. Cheese would add a nice touch Read More

I picked this recipe because it seemed simple and it included similar ingredients from the Caribbean sweet potato salad that I also made. Once I cooked everythinng I was a little intimadated bc it seemed an odd combination but suprisingly--it was very delicious--esp if you love avocados as I do. Read More

Good light pasta dish! I left out the vegetarian chili added a cup of frozen corn to the cooking pasta substituted bowtie pasta for the spaghetti and topped the dish with feta cheese. My picky husband and daughter both liked it. Read More

We really enjoyed this dish and it was so quick and easy to make. I used bowtie pasta instead of angel hair & regular white onion instead of green onion and we agreed to try it next time using turkey chili to give it more of a kick. Overall very satisfied! Read More

Although this was interesting and extremely healthy it wasn't a total hit. I love avocado so this left me somewhat satisfied but did little for anyone else. Also it was a lot of chopping and effort for something that I could only give 3 stars. Read More

This actually isn't too bad. I heated up the chili and tomato bc I just didn't want to eat that cold. I forgot the garlic though which is completely uncharacteristic of me. I must be tired! I don't have green onions so I omitted. Needed a bit of salt and pepper but not a bad dish. I was a bit surprised I liked it as I just wasn't too sure about it. Thanks! Read More
