    AmyZoe's Note:

    This is yummy inside of a flour tortilla and has all my favorites--beans, sausage, rice, and corn. The only ingredient I didn't have on hand that I won't leave out next time is the toasted pumpkin seeds (darn those homemade pumpkin seeds for getting eaten so quickly). I used chicken stock and threw my lime juice in at the beginning because I love the lime flavor. I also threw in the fresh cilantro toward the end of cooking time instead of to garnish. I added some cayenne pepper because I prefer more heat. Nice and hearty...and super simple.

      Great recipe! I just made it tonight. As every other cook does, I made some changes to suit my tastes. Instead of plain sausage I used beef chorizo. I bought green chile powder (yes, Virginia, there is such a thing) in Hatch NM last fall, so I threw that in, instead of cayenne and chiles. I used Pintos instead of Black beans, because i don't like black beans, (I think it's the color.) It was exceptionally tasty and now I have lunch and supper for a couple of days. Thanks AmyZoe for posting this.

      Made this tonight, good and's in the "rotation". I used hot sausage instead of the cayenne. Also cooked some of the cilantro into the dish for flavor. The pumpkin seeds do add alot to the dish!!
