    Suzy_Q's Note:

    Delicious as a side dish to Mexican fare or as a vegetarian taco filling. Easy, cheap and healthy with tons of flavor. My extremely picky boyfriend not only ate this but actually complimented me on it! You may use fresh onion if you like but picky bf doesn't like it so I use the powder. This is also nice garnished with fresh cilantro if you have it.

      This was a very interesting recipe. I doubled the recipe, and I found that the tomato sauce over powered the whole dish. I also thought that it was way to spicy, and I LOVE Spicy food, so next time I will only use half of the amount of jalapenos as well as half the amount of tomato sauce. The lime did add a very nice flavor. Thanks for sharing.
