Couscous Cubano
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
This recipe is a modification of a contest winner from Near East for original couscous creations. We omitted the green onion for personal tastes. I've only made it once, and it was a little bit bland using just the ingredients below, but was improved by putting some more lime juice on it. We will also try adding more cayenne pepper next time.
