My husband loves Mexican food. We recently purchased a new wave oven for convenient and fast dinners, since we work long hours. New wave ovens cooks from frozen to done within minutes, so am always trying to find creative recipes where I do not have to thaw out my meat first. This can be topped with sour cream or peppers. Also, my husband said it may be good with all the extra toppings stuffed into a burrito.
