Hi there!

When I pulled up your recipe here on Spark, and hit "create a makeover" to show exactly what ingredients you had entered, it shows a double entry on everything except the buns. The flank steak was in twice, the onions and peppers were in twice, all the spices and cheeses were in twice - no wonder you're showing the calorie count so much higher!

If you go back and edit your recipe, you'll be able to pull out the duplicates and it should work out closer to the original.

Hope that helps!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!
