I served this over white rice with mexican cornbread. DH had three helpings! The corn I used was shoepeg, it made a nice crunchy texture. We had left overs the next day, once all the flavors settled in, it was even better than before! I will be making this again soon. Thank you!
I served this with spanish rice and Tonkcats Corn Bread with Corn Casserole (Cornbread With Corn Casserole) It was delicous! The corn gives it just the right crunch and the tomatoes with chiles add the perfect amount of spiciness. I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for a great recipe. I will definately be making this again.
