      Yummo! This was fantastic! I left out the oil and just used cooking spray on both pans. I also used 2 serrano peppers, with the seeds, because we don't usually find jalapenos hot enough. As suggested, I added a can of black beans with the tomatoes and that seemed to work properly. I think next time I would use a can of diced tomatoes so that the tomato chunks will be more evenly dispersed throughout the dish. DBF dug in before I could top it with scallions, so those were left out, along with the cilantro, which I despise. All in all, a fabulous vegetarian meal that I will definitely be making again!
