Admittedly, I tried this adding cumin, chili powder as suggested previously. I even added some minced garlic with the meat. I uses Boca Crumbles as well. It did lack any flavor profile. And it was too dry... there just was too much macaroni per liquid ratio and it was just blah... I didn't hate it. We served it with tortilla baked scoops and it was better with the saltiness in the background but as a main entree, I think not. I will not be making this again.
