I didn't quite have a bowl big enough for this, so it's more of a burrito plate. I was craving something Mexican-inspired, but wasn't in the mood for all the cheese and tortillas. This was a lightened-up version with the added benefit of super-healthy kale.

The red chiles really would have made the salsa stand out, but the flavors are awesome regardless of color. I am such a sucker for a good Mexican dish, how many times do I have to say this to you all?
