Talk about taste and versatility! I have made this recipe many times, with Taste of Arizona, Taco the Town, Christy’s Chile Lime and my SoCal Cilantro Lime. (Mix and match the seasonings for a more intense flavor explosion!) No steak? Use chicken. Not a fan of quinoa? Sub brown rice or even cauliflower rice!
