Didn't have bell pepper so I added corn. Anything goes. It was wonderful on top of rice too.

Yummy. Beautiful colors.

I really love this recipe. Only thing I did different was squeeze lime on top. :)

Made it without the bell peppers and used cumin instead of the cilantro and was still great.

YUM.. very very good I used a roasted garlic salsa for extra garlicky goodness.. have had them with both corn and flour tortillas.
