Helpful hints

  • If desired, replace canned tomatoes with 1 large fresh tomato, peeled and diced. Replace chipotle pepper with a fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced.
  • Adjust spices/peppers as desired.
  • For a lower calorie and carbohydrate meal serve over rice and omit tortillas.
  • For added kick, chop cilantro and stir into cooked rice. Add a splash of lime juice.
