I haven't tried this dish yet, but am saving it here to try later. This is the most requestsed recipe from La Casa Sena in Santa Fe by Executive chef Kelly Rogers. Sounds yummy.

What a sensational side dish! This packs some heat. It's nice and spicy, just the way we like it! I cut the recipe in half and it made enough for 4 people. So we get leftovers. Every once in a while you get a surprise by tasting the ginger. I served it warm and used the oven method only because I didn't want to start up the grill. Thanks for posting. :)
