    Did not follow the veggies exactly as written because I did not have any squash or zucchini on hand. I used one of each: green, red, yellow and orange pepper and 2 medium onions. All was very good!

    Very flavorful!!! I cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us. The lime and the cumin really make this recipe. I added an extra squeeze of lime juice to the vegetables before serving.
