    You can even add peppers, chilli, zucchini, carrots or any other vegetable you like!  -  22 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When I made this recipe I did make some changes. Instead of 1 tablespoon of tomato paste I put in 2 tablespoons. I also put in 1 and half cups of water instead of a quarter cup. Also, sometimes tomatoes from a can can taste kind of yucky so I added 5 fresh tomatoes. I do agree that there was not enough sauce so next time I think I'll add more sauce. The last change I made is I put in cilantro (I think about 3 tablespoons).  -  18 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
