    The original recipe did not call for any seasonings but this definitely needs it. My favorites for this dish are: salt, garlic powder, cumin, and onion powder.

    I prefer this a little creamier so I usually add an extra 1/4 cup or so of the yogurt/sour cream. Also, while the yogurt is definitely healthier, we prefer the flavor of the sour cream.

    We also like to top it with chopped fresh tomatoes before serving, and my husband likes it with salsa.

    This meal freezes and reheats well.
