      It's great to find a healthy dish that's delicious too. We had it just by itself since we are trying to cut back on meat. It looked so colorful and was full of flavor. I didn't have any turmeric, so I subbed a packet of Sazon Azafran. And since my son doesn't like cilantro or limes, instead of dressing it with them, I just mixed the juice and cilantro in with the dish. I love the flavor they add, and he didn't know the difference. LOL. Thanks for sharing this -- as others said I think it will make a great filling too for burritos and tostadas. Yum!

      Made half a recipe but used white rice. Excellent with our pork verde.

      I had some leftover yellow rice, so I just made the bean part. I used green, yellow, and red peppers since I had a bunch that were starting to soften. I was a little afraid the flavors would be too mild/bland, but it came out delicious. I served it with some sliced avocado. Even the teen gave his stamp of approval, although he did comment he would have liked it a lot better with a little ground beef added in. It was quick and easy to make, made a pretty plate, and definitely getting saved for the future!
