This is delicious! A bit on the spicy side, but very tolerable. This is a VERY easy dish to make, and only dirties one skillet...hardly any clean up! I

This was okay. Interesting to steam rice with enchilida sauce. I used green sauce. Instead of cilantro, I used green onions and topped with sirracha. Made with some grilled zucchini. My husband said, " I don't know where you came up with theis but it's good!"
