This was very good. I used creole seasoning instead of crushed red pepper, and sliced up mini red, yellow, and orange bell peppers instead of green peppers. I served it with a side of black beans (recipe from Bush's Beans) and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Very tasty!
I've been making these since June 2001, and they are one of our family favorites. I always add vertically cut onion slices, and offer salsa verde as an optional topping, in addition to the salsa. Sometimes I substitute chicken. This is a very simple, quick weeknight meal, and also delicious. This recipe was featured as part of a Dinner Tonight menu, and the suggested side dish was for Black Bean Salad. Can't find it in My Recipes, so here it is:
Combine 1 (15 -ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed; 2 chopped green onions; 1 chopped plum tomato; and 1 tablespoon each of chopped fresh cilantro, fresh lime juice, and olive oil.
