Looks delicious.
Me and mum were discussing earlier what it'd be like to replace rice with quinoa on something like this.

That looks awesome. I'll have to fit that into the rotation next week--we've been craving Mexican here. Thanks for the recipe. I second trying this with quinoa.

This looks really good. I love all the fresh vegetables that you use. I wouldn't try it without the chicken though. We like to eat meat with all meals (for dinner). I bet it's a bit spicy too. That means my husband would love it.
