Top Review by mama smurf

Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game and what a delicious side dish!!! I made as written only sauteing a little minced onion and garlic before adding to the mixture. So easy and such a delicious tasting dish. Going into my Favorites of 2013. Thank you for posting. Served along with chicken in tomatillo salsa and zucchini.
