    Amazing dish. I tweaked it tho. I added chopped red capsicum, grated carrot, grated zucchini, tin of black beans and corn. For the herbs 1tsp of chilli is more than enough, borderline medium heat. All other spices say 1/2tsp. I upped it to 1tsp.

    This recipe was good but tasted incomplete. A better mix of seasonings and spices make this dish awsome.

    Very easy and tasty with ingredients I had on hand. Ended up halting meat and still didn’t use all for first batch. Kept well in fridge for a quick snack.
