I was trying to think of a new recipe to serve at a Mexican themed get together & this is the result. It is so versatile! It may be served as a side dish or in a bowl, as an entree with yellow rice &/or cornbread. It also makes for an interesting burrito filling.
You can make it less spicy by using plain diced tomatoes for some of the Rotel tomatoes, and omitting the jalapeno.
