Comments on this Recipe

I modified this recipe some to use what I already had in the house instead of going shopping... orange bell pepper instead of red, rotel tomatoes instead of roasted and I just forgot to add the cumin and chili powder. LOVED THESE!! They were so flavorful and took literally about 10 minutes total to make.

easy to make GF

Made this and i was so pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. The onions and peppers really made it special

Tried these tonight. Following a Daniel Fast so made an Avocado Cilantro Lime dressing and homemade fresh salsa to serve with them in place of the cheese and sour cream and they were delicious!
