For a low-fat version, this is pretty good. I did miss the addition of a meat to the dish; however, really enjoyed the vegetable sauce that tops the dish. I did not have a green bell pepper so I used red which what I had on hand. Used a jalapeno pepper and the corn tortillas were blue corn. When cutting the corn tortillas, I use my kitchen scissors which works great. A nice breakfast served with fresh melon.
