We LOVE the flavors of the Southwest!! The tang of fresh limes, the smokiness of chipotle, the heat of chile- all of these flavors combined with an abundance of green-light foods makes for a perfect dinner for "Taco Tuesday". Visit the flavors of the Southwest with this bright and beautiful bowl any night of the week!!

This meal is an excellent source of folate, Vitamins A, C, K, B vitamins, Copper, Zinc, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorous, Folate, Potassium, and Omega 3
