Back in the saddle again, they say! I seem to still be having a tough time getting my work schedule in alignment with my ability to get meal time to be something healthy and made at home. With the holiday I’ve been at home working so being able to make this better is under way. I had a 1pm appointment so this recipe was a nice choice for when i got home and to have dinner ready in under an hour with little input from me!

I know the point of this recipe was keto, wheatless etc. But i think the addition of green chilies and black beans would make it a bit better. Also thinking ground turkey might be a neat option as well.


The taste with the adobo peppers is wonderful!

Worth another try with some of the additions considered above.
