Jack added this and that for lunch today and it was so yummy I had to put it on here... He just kept adding what looked good to him - clean out the fridge! We think you could substitute chicken and add mushrooms for a different take... I guessed at the amounts of spices, but it was very light. You could vary to your own taste. We used some Jalapeno Relish as to tweak the spice a bit.
