I did not make this but had it at our monthly cooking group. The person who made it said it was very bland and she did a lot of adjusting and adding ingredients to fix the flavor. I am not sure exactly what was done but I do know toasted cumin seeds were then ground and added. This combination is a really good one. But consider cumin, pepper such as chipotle, chili, ancho to add a kick. Quinoa mixed in would also be fun.
