    A great brunch or dinner dish from my favorite Galveston-area church cookbook. I use Amazing Taco Seasoning for the taco seasoning.

      I scaled this down and used some cooked chard I had leftover. Loved it! I didn't have Monterey Jack so used some Mexican farmers cheese. Thanks for a great breakfast!

      I liked the addition of the spinach. This reminded me of a polenta dish. My boys seemed to enjoy it too. Great chance of pace. Thanks for sharing. Made for 1-2-3 tag.

      I halved the recipe. Loved the colors in the dish. I used fresh spinach and fresh corn, instead of frozen and canned. I'd decrease the amount of taco seasoning, because I felt it overshadowed the wonderful tastes of the veggies. I also probably added a bit more cheese! Thanks for sharing!
