    This had a great flavor. I didn't get to make the lime-cilantro cole slaw with it...I'll have to do that next time. I would not, however, consider it kid friendly. My daughter hated it and it had to much spice for my son...(he's one...and it would burn his butt...) I'm sure older kids would like it though...but to me kid friendly is where the pickest kid would love it. It was really good though.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
