Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think pairing this with a nice black bean salad or with some black beans included. Would it change the dish too much to add beans for some protein? I understand the nutritional value would be different, but I like the sound of using a low-fat bean with the green chilies. I am feeding three hungry teens.

OMG was this ever good! I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where we have access to fresh green chiles in varying heat levels. The fresh chiles make such a difference. I make this about once every other week. We eat this as a main course with a side salad, but it would also make a great side dish.

Haven't tried it yet, but love that you have listed the nutritional value. Thanks!
