What a great recipe! I was looking for something to throw together on a lazy weekend day at home. I had all the ingredients on hand except bell pepper, and I also didn't have any canned green chiles, so I ended up just putting in a bit more chunky salsa and cooking it down a bit longer. Still turned out great! Leftovers were super tasty and I will be making this again!

These were really easy for a busy day! I used (extra) salsa instead of opening a new can of tomatoes. I did not have sazon, so used the option instead. Maybe in need of some extra salt and pepper!
