Acapulco Comes to Your Table!

 

Bring a little bit of Acapulco to your home with this stir-fry version of a Mexican food medley.

This is a colorful dish of reds, greens and yellows.  If it is too hot/spicy, then cut back on the hot pepper seasoning and chili powder.

To make it into a main meal, on your plate, spread a layer of corn chips, then a layer of your choice of lettuce or other greens, add black beans to the Corn Medley and put on top.  Mix it all together on the plate and enjoy!

To your health!
