Well, with six more weeks of winter, you may be needing a few more "warm you up" style recipes. This easy dish is quick, filling, and delicious. While it may not be the prettiest dish you make this week, we love this kind of recipe because it allows you to make as many substitutes as you want, giving you a larger rage of options. Not a fan of Salsa Verde? Try it with your favorite salsa. Better yet, use a jar of homemade salsa from all those garden fresh veggies last summer! Prefer brown rice over white? Give it a try! It is also great because you can add all the veggies you want and love! Here's to a tasty dinner this week!
