    The mozzarella didn’t melt well, it wasn’t super flavorful. Still good I guess

    It was bland. I added 1/4 parm and used thinly shredded mozzarella so it melted quickly and I used light cream instead of milk. I thought it came out pretty creamy. It just needs more seasonings. I’ll make it again but adding some spices next time.

    Fairly bland. Probably won’t make it again.
    It was very delicious, but the mozzarella really didn’t do so well. Really didn’t melt. On a positive note I added grated Parmesan and Tony Chacheres it heightened the lime flavor.

    It's ok, but the lime and cilantro got lost in translation, It's an ok weekday dinner, but it was very plain.
