    When I first saw this recipe come out in the new published recipe list, I just knew I'd like it, has everything in it I love. Finally had a chance to make it. Nice southwestern breakfast that is easy to make, healthy and will keep you satisfied all day long. Thanks Matt for such a great idea for breakfast.  -  24 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great textures, combination of items and taste. My daughter especially liked it, as she is into all food that is Mexican or Southwestern. Saw that some on here have mentioned that this recipes is full of carbs. It does have lots of carbs, but they are healthy ones. This recipe contains healthy, complex carbohydrates like beans and avocados, which we all need to have healthy, balanced diets and that provide energy; we should avoid simple carbs, like pretzels, white bread, donuts, lots of types of candies, pies, etc. are the types that turn to pure sugar once eaten and cause weight gain. It is never healthy to completely avoid ALL carbs, just the ones that cause weight gain or can be unhealthful for those with various diseases like diabetes. It is never healthy to avoid any one food group; just make sure you are eating the right type.  -  07 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
