This was a quick, tasty and filling dinner. Onion isn't listed in the ingredients but it's in the instructions, so I diced one small red onion. I used assorted mini bell peppers (red, orange, yellow) and upped the quantities (except the cheese--I used sharp cheddar) so I baked it in a rectangular 9x13 casserole dish. We didn't have sour cream but it was great without it.
