YUM! Left out the cauliflowerets (didn't have any on hand) and used a green pepper instead of a red one and didn't use cilantro. Great way to eat a lot of healthy veggies!

Way better than the store-bought mixes! And all of the ingredients are on hand! I used whatever veggies I had in the fridge added more garlic (of course!) The only thing is, I tried the cilantro at the end and it just didn't go with the dish. We moved and miss our old home-town take-out. This makes up for it!
