My son loves it! Had to adjust the hot red pepper flakes as it burned our mouths. TOO hot for us but using a pinch of it gave it a nice kick without the burn. LOL Oh and I added some beans to it.

The reason this recipe is low carb is that there are NO BEANS listed in the ingredients! Am I missing something?
