    Shuzbud's Note:

    I was trying to find a healthy, flavourful meal and this hit the spot. The topping is not quite so healthy but the crushed nachos give the meal a well-balanced flavour.

      Nice flavour and easy to assemble. I used an extra chunky, extra mild salsa. I'm not very good with spicy heat. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)

      Quick preparation and great taste! I already had some leftover long grain rice in the fridge, so it was even quicker to put together after the veggies were cooked. Thanks for sharing!

      I left the vegetables out of this dish as a personal preference. We topped the dish with sour cream when serving. Made for PAC Fall 09.
