Good recipe, I also added 1 can of drained black beans to the onion mixture. Served them with sour cream, salsa and guacomole.

Slightly more work than I expected--you know, taking things in and out of your skillet--but quick & simple nonetheless. Really yummy! I substituted a can of diced green chilies for the jalapeno without problems. We topped with salsa, but next time I would consider adding some diced tomatoes for a variation.
