Very nice change from mashed potatoes and everyone enjoyed. I cut WAY back on the adobo chiles (part of one chopped up and about 1 t of the sauce) but offered some on the side for my husband to mix in to his. Everyone was pleased. The lime flavor really stood out to me, which was a nice touch. We will definitely make this again!
