    I was a little concerned about the 2 28 oz. cans of tomatoes, but the meal was quite good. I added a tsp. sugar to cut the acid of the tomatoes, but otherwise no changes. This is not real spicy, you could add jalapenos to up that. This makes a great lunch for those watching their waistlines, I have eaten for lunch the last two days and lost a pound.
