This dish is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or whenever you have a craving for Mexican. So often we skip Mexican cuisine because it can be incredibly unhealthy, but with the right ingredients, we could eat it on a regular basis. If you have never tried substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream, you must give it a try—amazing!
