"I like this recipe because it's so adaptable. You wanna use canned corn, you can. Don't like peas, like i don't? Skip 'em. You don't feel like cutting up a pepper? You don't have to. I used some frozen pepper strips I bought at the local supernarket and they worked great! And using those enables you to expand the palette of the dish, making it even more colorful with the green, yellow, and orange to go with the red.

Fine side, good way to get your veggies."
