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.

Wow, this exceeded my expectations. Picked this recipe simply to use things we had in the fridge, but it's definitely a keeper. Used leftover yakisoba noodles, and it worked great.

I will make this again but I will definately cut it in half, this made a huge amount for the three of us and I had to freeze more than half. Great smells from the kitchen while cooking, good flavor and pretty healthy too.
