Traditionally this recipe would call for green onions, fresh jalapeño, and fresh tomatoes. All are great but you cook with what you have available, and for this recipe, my named ingredients were what I had. Play with the recipe and find your favorite combination.
Throw this in with a few cups of white rice cooked with chili powder, cumin, and green pepper and you'll have some seriously tasty Spanish Rice.
