Had this tonight made a few changes. Substituted red for green peppers ( don't like the taste of green bell peppers) and used ground chicken with not added anything. Was very tasty. Was quick and easy didn't miss the salt at all. I am a new dialysis patient and am finding some very good food ideas here. lots of good stuff.

This recipe was a bit bland. I had to add hot sauce to it.
