From the time my grandmother brought back tacos from Sandiago back in the 60's to this day anything southwestern spells delicious to me. I created this for my family to enjoy the complexity of flavors from south of the border. It is also easy easy easy! And almost fat free if you skip the cheese! Enjoy!
