    dahlia's Note:

    This is one of Jeanne Lemlin's recipes (from her wonderful cookbook "Quick Vegetarian Pleasures") that I have adapted a little to my taste. It is one of my favorite quick and healthy weeknight meals. It tastes good with or without the sour cream, and also is good with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese on top. It makes great leftovers and is good for work lunches.

      Very quick and tasty. The flavour of this will very much depend on the quality of your salsa, as the salsa really dominates the taste. I added some minced garlic and cumin and used cilantro instead of parsley.
