Partially inspired by Chipotle's delicious sweet corn, bell peppers, tomatoes, and onions mix and partially by my desire to create delicious vegetable dishes, I came up with this recipe. I love vegetables and have been interested in Mexican cuisine lately so I've been researching Mexican dishes, spices, and herbs. In my googling, and the times I've been to authentic Mexican restaurants, I realized that while delicious the majority of Mexican dishes or maybe well known ones are pretty much meat dishes. Not many vegetable side dishes came up and I found that interesting so I've been trying out different spice and vegetable combinations and continuing to read up on Mexican cuisine. For the home cooks that want to cook something healthy and tasty to go with their chicken fajitas, tacos, or other Mexican dishes, this recipe is for you!
