I made this tonight to go with burritos I made for dinner! I really enjoyed it! I did add 3tbs of tomato paste and added a dash of chili powder! It was a HIT! I will make this again for sure!!

Looked for non-spicy, non-acidic recipe for my family after struggling through a stomach bug that would also use up some green peppers and onions I had already in the fridge chopped up. I added cooked chicken breast to it to make it a main dish. I probably would have spiced it up a bit more if our stomachs could have handled that, but it was very good. Probably better as the original recipe of it being a side to a different main Mexican dish.
