"I made this recipe as a side dish to some other Mexican recipes I was making. I turned out good but I thought it had a pretty strong cilantro flavor. My sister and husband were here for supper when we had it and my sister loved it because she likes cilantro a lot. It was OK but next time I will probably use less cilantro, unless my sister is going to be here!"
