A phenomenal amount of flavor and healthy to boot! Ease up on (or omit entirely) the jalapeno and cayenne if you're a lightweight like me. In fact, I just use one 4-oz can of mild diced green chilies instead.

This dish was a huge hit in our household. Both my daughters declared that ingredients be added to shopping list so can be made often. I did make a few changes to fit our taste buds. I used parsley instead of cilantro and used chili powder instead of cumin and diced green chili instead of jalapeno chile. We made burrito's from them and all I heard over and over was yum yum. thanks so much for the great post and it will be made very often in this household.

This is great! Super easy to throw together. I'm not a big fan of hot either, so I took your advice and used a can of green chilis. This made 8 burritoes, when mixed with about the same amount of rice and topped with cheese. Freezes very well. I'll be having this for lunch all this week. Thanks for sharing! :)
