    This was a very simple, classic recipe. We are a family of 2, and we had ~ 2.5 meals each. We added in extra bell peppers just for our liking.

    My husband raved about this dish all week. I didn’t have chili powder, but I did have chipotle chili powder, so ours was probably spicier than intended but still so good!! If you’re making the same sub, I would do 1-1.5tbsp of chipotle chili powder.
