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 (recipe #4178) 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.
