This is another recipe that I threw together to serve to my "almost" vegetarian friend I am not a vegetarian but really enjoyed this recipe. You may vary the veggies that you put in it - It may even be part of "clean the fridge" of leftover veggies. The prepared meat substitute is pre cooked and only needs ro be warmed through. Serve with pasta or rice. Cooked Macaroni may even be mixed in with it in the pan. An avocado is nice on the side. Use hot, medium or mild salsa, homemade or bought . Season with salt & Pepper. Serve with a nice green side salad.

Sounds excellent, Bergy!!! I have a neice who needs recipes and she is a vegetarian, so will pass this on. Thank you!! Love, Becky
This is an excellent recipe! I added corn to the whole mixture and then wrapped it all up in a tortilla like a burrito. It was a huge success with my family.
