    Quick and easy to make, but a little bland. Needs to be spiced up a bit. Cumin would be an improvement.

    Very bland, didn't like the texture. I assume they were going for the polenta like taste. The cream of wheat just didn't do it.

    DEFINITELY need to add some extras - pretty bland using just the original recipe. But not bad.
