I printed this out and tried it for a pot luck dinner. It was received well. I omitted the green pepper, and replace it with one small can of mild chopped green chili, and one small can of the hot. It added a kick that we are used to in a Mexican dish.

Most of our recipes are reader submitted, and nutrition information is not provided to us. When we receive it, we do include with the recipe.

I see by a comment the nutritional counts have now been included however I am not able to find them. Do you click on something to find them?

How much cooked squash in this recipe ?

Another great sounding recipe lacking nutritional info.

Thank you for your note - our readers are our best Editors! We have updated the recipe to included the previously omitted zucchini, squash, and mushrooms.

What exactly do you do with the cooked squash,zucchini or mushrooms?
