A colorful dish I had fun making, from a Mexican cookbook that I altered to my liking by using healthier vegan-friendly ingredients. I served it with steamed black beans and ate on tortillas with monterey jack cheese. Yummy!

Very simple to prepare, put it together and leave it!!! I loved this, not overly spicy, just a pleasant bite. I had no fresh coriander, so I used freeze-dried, however I will make this again with the Real thing! I liked the addition of lime juice, I very much enjoy those citrus flavours! A very good accompaniment to any number of dishes, I'm glad to add this to "good ways to eat rice" collection! Thanks, 80's Rule! Made for Veg*n swap#17
