    1. Thanks Kathryn! I hope you try it! You can always tweak it to your liking! Add a diced jalapeño or your favorite bean. I love to dump tons of fresh cilantro and even more fresh avocado! Thanks for the comment!!!

    2. Thanks! It really is delicious! I’m a sucker for avocado and want a bit with every bite! It’s so easy too and a hit with all my kids!

    1. It works so well together! You can always make your own seasonings. I have a big jar of taco seasoning I made for dishes like these.

      I love soups and stews and hearty pasta dishes this time of year!
