    Followed the recipe exactly, but not a single person at our dinner party ate more than one which is pretty telling.  -  16 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    No changes to ingredients, baked in oven, added 10 minutes, used a 1 pound pkg of organic baby yams. Very tasty, flavor from lime juice stands out above others, right amount of spice from cumin and chili powder. Husband loved it, I loved it, will make again.  -  04 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I followed the recipe, and this was not to my family's taste. I will not make it again.  -  09 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
