    Delish. Made it with a small can of rotel instead of that fancy pants “tomato paste”. Ain’t never had a paste since elementary school. I do highly recommend Elmer’s paste if you’re in the market for a paste. Good paste that is.

    This recipe is great with a few changes - first we switch the tomato paste for 1/3 cup tomato purée, and then halve the cumin

    It was good. I will use less cumin next time and maybe tomato sauce instead of paste. Also needs more spices. Going to play around with this recipe.
