From Cooking Light. This is 4 servings if you are having rice and a vegetable, and are not very hungry, in my opinion. With no side dishes, a very hungry person could eat the whole thing!

We enjoyed it. Different flavour with the goat cheese, which was nice for a change. I used the regular corn tortillas that's available here. The only extra ingredient I added in was one sliced and sauteed green pepper. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
