Clean, Fresh and Perfect are the only words that I can describe this with... oh, I forgot to mention ADDICTIVE! And for the low , low calorie count.. what could be a healthier addiction?! I love this with fajitas, but I love it best with fat-free tortilla chips (Tostito's Light). I can totally pig out on this and not kick myself in the butt later for messing up my diet. Full of flavor, and Wow.. sooo goood! Measurements are approximate and can be adjusted to taste.

This recipe was a hit! My entire family loved it, including my three small kids. We put it on fish tacos and it was fabulous. The only thing I would have done differently, would be making more (considering I already doubled it). They are fighting over it with the tortilla chips now. Thanks for sharing!

This recipe tastes much better after it has sat in the fridge for an hour. DH ate half of it in one sitting.
