I'm not going to rate this since I made a few changes and hate it when people make changes and then rate it low! :O) I used a red onion and red peppers instead of the poblano. I also used brown jasmine rice and threw in some vegetarian chicken nuggets. While I thought it was pretty good, my husband wasn't crazy about it. Thanks so much for sharing!
