My entire family liked this recipe even my non vegetable liking kids! I modified it in several ways though. I used powdered bullion cubes and it was chicken flavored. I also used brown rice. Of course, this is healthier. I also used roasted frozen corn for a bit more flavor. I used some cumin, oregano, added more lime juice, chichken and pepper as well to add a bit more flavor and to make it a main dish. It definitely took me a lot more time due to using the brown rice, but was worth the time. I definitely recommend increasing the seasoning.

This was so delicious! I didn't think anyone in my family would go for it, but to my surprise, they loved it and even came back for seconds! I did everything as instructed, except I used brown rice. Topped with cheese, sour cream and a dash of hot sauce. I will be making this again!
