Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Life is too short to have to endure bland food!  Of course that means you MUST try this dish!  If you like spice, this dish delivers and WILL wake up your taste buds.  Be warned, though, that some may find this a bit too spicy.  Feel free to adjust the chili powder and cumin to your own personal preference.

One other thing:  this recipe is specifically for you 21 Day Fixers.  It uses the Fix containers to measure ingredients.  In case you're wondering, this recipe makes 4 servings - each counts as 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 blue, and 1 red container.
