OMG!  These are SO good! 

I threw a few splashes of soy sauce on the veggies before I put them in the skillet, used Italian seasoning instead of the parsley and oregano, used red pepper flakes, black pepper and some seasoning salt instead of the cayenne, and I cooked it for probably about 7 - 10 minutes (wasn't watching the clock) instead of the minute or so like the recipe says.  My veggies weren't done enough for me at that point. 

I will  definitely be making these again!  Thank you!


I changed the recipe just a touch, as I didn't have tortillas, so I just served with tomato rice, and added black pepper instead of cayenne (I was out...).Super fast and yummy, very flavourful!


This was good :) I probably doubled the spices though and used refried beans in place of the rice... good way to use up leftover or even frozen veggies :)
