Back in France, we're back to tightening the belt a bit again: all that homemade ice cream means that I need to watch what and when I eat; all that shopping (and not working) means that we need to work on making the most of our budget. This recipe was nice in both respects: it's a light dish that uses fairly inexpensive staple ingredients.
Agreed, it doesn't look like much, but it tastes really good. The chili I used was not very spicy, so we used a bit of siricha to spice it up. Otherwise, the flavors are balanced and clean, so that even though this is a hot meal, it's nice for summer. A great meal to come home to.
