These were quite good! Had them with Huervo Ranchero's as a side for breakfast this morning. Kinda a late breakfast so I don't have to make lunch!! :) Pretty slick eh? I highly recommend them as a side for burritoes too! Which I will do as I have plenty even by cutting the recipe in half! Also, I used chili peppers in place of the bells. I didn't add any sugar and thought they were still good! Thank you!
