Served this as a stuffing for Chipotle Grill Style Chicken Burritos Chipotle Mexican Grill Ancho Chile Marinade for Meat Recipe. Quick and easy. I recommend the addition of the juice of a single lime, and about 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro.
Yum!! Left out the corn, added sausage, and used 1/2 can of Rotel instead of salsa...easy and cheap...
Very filling and makes a ton. I served mine with just a sprinkling of grated lowfat mozzarella cheese. I'm going to try the leftovers rolled in tortillas for lunch!
