...also use a few shakes of garlic powder or granulated instead of raw garlic. Sprinkle some finely shredded cheddar or Mexican/Taco mix cheese on top before serving. ...and if you're in a real hurry, substitute about 2 cups, or more, of drained, fresh made, "store bought" Pico de Gallo (in produce section) for tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and cilantro.

add some chopped jalapenos and cilantro!
