1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 red bell pepper, cored and diced
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies, drained (or 1 jalapeno, diced)

*To make it vegan you can try topping it with my Healthy Vegan Queso. My original plan was actually to make this recipe that way and when I tested it, it tasted great but unfortunately it wasn’t very photogenic.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
