Recipe by A Messy Cook

A colorful, healthy side dish for any meal. Chopped cilantro would be a great addition! This is from Light & Tasty’s Feb/March 2005 issue. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think it would be really good with burritos or fajitas.

This was a very tasty lunch. I also used pre-cooked brown rice and added fresh tomato at the end. Fresh ground pepper and hot sauce added the finishing touch! Perhaps I will try adding black beans the next time we have this. Thanks for posting!
