Very good as well as quick and easy! I substituted one4 oz can of diced green chilis (mild) because I cannot tolerate the heat of jalapena peppers. Also used 1/2 the recommended amount for cumin and oregano.

Delicious and fast. My husband and I made this on a weeknight and enjoyed it. Really closer to 4 servings in our home. Thanks for the recipe!
