My sister in laws family lives in Mexico. They only eat meat maybe once a week, and that's usually on a Saturday or Sunday. When they do eat meat that usually means going to the yard and picking out a chicken. This is one of their usual week day dinners, very simple, very easy, and very inexpensive.
