I mix in additional yogurt to the kids’ bowls to lower the heat for them and keep it spicy for adults.NUTRITIONServing: 440gCalories: 308kcalCarbohydrates: 27gProtein: 32gFat: 8gSaturated Fat: 2gPolyunsaturated Fat: 1gMonounsaturated Fat: 1gCholesterol: 93mgSodium: 674mgPotassium: 772mgFiber: 6gSugar: 9g
