This is a healthy and easy meal. I serve it with a tossed green salad. If queso fresco is not available, use a white cheese like Monterray jack.

This was a very tasty dinner. Something a bit different! Took the advice of reviewer and cut back on the oil and it was fine. Also a drizzle of fresh lime juice brightened the flavors! Will definitely make this again and maybe throw a bit of corn in for a different crunch.
