Mexican Stir Fry

I don't really care for Mexican food at all. Just not my kinda taste, ya know.
But for some reason when I found this, something told me I had to try it. 
It actually wasn't bad at all. 

I could of lived without the cilantro in it, but I decided to throw it in there anyway. 
Next time I will be sure to leave it out. 
My own personal taste, I don't care for it at all. 
I also used a 4 oz can of green chillies instead of 7. 
I don't care much for heat as the food that produce the heat don't care for me as well either. 
But this was actually quite pleasing. 
Even the little one ate it up!
