Excellent recipe. I did alter it to my like, added more veggies to the recipe, and took out the lime juice, and cilantro. This is really good. My husband loved it! I love it to and its going down in my recipe book. Thanks for the recipe!

Quick and easy but could use some more flavor... may need to add some more spices. Used mixed veggies instead of just peas and added green olives and onions. Simple though and good for days you need a fast meal without much thought!
