"This is a great starter. You can make it with a bit more water and you get somewhat of a soup, or let it cook and eat it with a plate of rice."

Great side dish! I only wish I would have doubled the recipe so I could have leftovers. Thanks for the recipe!

I had to add more liquid as it cooked and I added chicken broth instead of water. My Colombian boyfriend said it was like his mother's. :)

Love this dish! the cumin makes it great. I also added 2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes, 3 cloves of garlic and a stalk of celery. Instead of regular tomatoes, I added cherry tomatoes. Red potatoes in the skin give this dish a little bit more bite. Really enjoyed this dish a lot!
