      Great recipie! Substituted medium enchalida sauce for the tomato sauce since that’s what I had on hand and it tasted great!

        What a creative idea – would not have thought of the enchilada sauce being a good fit, but so glad it worked out well. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Hi, I want to know will it taste good without red peppers, tomatoe sauce and the cheese? What can I substitute for the items due to l want to make it now . I have hilishire sausage, broccoli, yell0w onion,rice ,garlic powder. Do I need to wait until I have all ingredients? be honest

      • MC says:

        You could use any sort of pepper (green, yellow, red, orange or chile pepper), or leave it out altogether. Increase the chicken broth if you don’t have tomato sauce, and it will just change the base of the dish to a chicken broth base instead of having the tomato base. I prefer the dish with cheese on top, but it’s definitely not necessary. I hope this helps.
