    Absolutely delicious and the best part it was very easy to make. I served it with hass avocados and romaine lettuce. My whole family enjoyed it.

    This was so easy and very tasty. I made it with brown rice and had it as a meal. Great for those nights you don't want to spend a lot of time making something. The other flavors minimized the brown rice (my kids & husband prefer white rice). Tonight I am adding cooked chicken to it.
