    ngibsonn's Note:

    Easy, fast, healthy and delicious! This perfect weeknight dish takes less than 30 minutes, so it's a regular in our house. You can vary the heat by the kind and amount of chile powder and hot peppers you use. Serve over hot cooked rice, if desired.

      I used Emeril's Original Essence instead of salt/pepper/chili powder, and added about a 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and some water as needed to create a bit of a sauce for it. Turned out really, really good. I'll definitely be making this one again!

      This is a favorite at our house. Nice and spicy, but it doesn't have to be. I used jarred jalapenos instead of fresh. Love it!!!!
