What I love about this recipe is that it will work for you in Phase 2, Phase 3, and it makes a great family meal with just a few additions.  For a P2 POP version, simply season the meat with salt, cumin, chili powder & garlic powder. Add peppers and onion for another P2 version.  For a Phase 3-friendly version add 1/4 cup diced Pepper Jack Cheese.  And for a meal your entire family will enjoy, add 1/4 cup of frozen corn and/or black beans.
