I love cilantro but this just doesn't cut it. I was reaching for the salt pepper and ketchup in order to give these some flavor. Read More

The cilantro didn't really make much of a difference they were still very bland. Don't think I'll be making these again. Read More

I didn't expect much from this recipe but I had some cilantro that had to be used up and I'm tired of making salsas. With that being said I just used frozen french fries instead of making my own. These fries are very bland; when you fry cilantro much of the flavor is lost. I managed to eat them after doctoring them up with ketchup salt pepper garlic powder and hot sauce. Sorry MISSDOLCEPOIS I hate giving bad reviews but this just didn't work for me. Read More
