I just love simple meals that come together fast. This recipe may be prepared ahead of time and frozen for up to 1 month. Directions are included for freezing and preparation. This is great with the jalapeno seeds, but if you like it a little more mild, then omit the seeds. Marinade time is not included in prep or cook time. From 300-calorie One-Dish Meals.

Made this last night to take to work today. This was excellent! Had to throw it in my lunch container and mark it so that it wouldn't get eaten. I did use a bit more jalapeno peppers that noted....because I'm crazy and thought it won't be "that" hot. It had some heat to it but was awesome! Also I tossed mine on the bbq as I didn't feel like heating up the house. Still tasted wonderful. Another good post! PAC 09
This was delicious.
