Didn't work out so well for me. If I try again I will take the pot off the heat and just let them soak since four minutes of cooking left them too hard for my taste. Also wondering if the mix needs something like raw onions or bell peppers. Read More

Can't say that is was my favorite at all. I didn't look at other reviews at all to know what others thought. But not sure I'd make this again. I'm just on the fence. My daughter liked it but I was just so-so with it. It was rather simple but not a wow-wee type of recipe. Sorry. Read More
