  1. Would it change the flavor much if I substitue a red/yellow or orange pepper for a green one? The kids do not like the tast of the green peppers.

    • The flavor would still be great with red or orange peppers since you already have fragrant cilantro and lime. PLUS red and orange peppers are a vitamin C powerhouse, so go for it!
