Way too spicy for me!

This recipe was fairly bland as written. I spiced it up with some chiles from my yard and ended up being satisfied with it. It does get 3 stars just because it was incredibly quick and easy to make.

I sauteed chopped yellow onions before adding the ingredients. I also added a bit of garlic powder and about 1/3 cup of salsa. This dish is nothing spectacular, but IS quick, easy, and yummy! Will make again.
