This recipe was great!!! It was the perfect blend of lemon, lime, and peppers with an awesome mexican kick!! My whole family enjoyed this recipe and i will be sure to ad it to my collection!

I tried this recipe last nite and it was extremely bitter. It would likely be fine with just 1-3 slices of lemon or lime.

Bitter and sour. I decreased the amount of citrus as recommended by the second reviewer, but it didn't help. Would not make again.

This is bitter. I like bitter as a flavor but this was a bit much for me. Some red pepper flakes and sour cream toned it down so then I liked it

I added more beer, butter rather than olive oil, 1 full red pepper, red pepper flakes, and more lemon but no lime, then Farmer cheese on top. Served over spanish brown rice.
