I can't remember when or where I found this recipe, but I've used it nearly every week since. We like it with hot sauce for added spice. -Amy Trinkle of Milwaukee, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2014

I used a bit more oil and put everything in a ziplock bag. I let it marinate for a day or more before I throw it in a pan. Easy and quick to do ahead. I have taken the bag to a friend with all the fixings when she had a boby. Easy.

Can't beat something that's this easy, flavorful, and still relatively healthy.

Delicious!!! This has been added to our Family Favorites recipe binder. We used whole wheat tortillas, and loved it. My dad didn't even notice that they were whole wheat (he hates whole wheat).
