This is a flavorful, versatile dish! I eat it nearly every morning, heated in a small skillet and topped with a poached egg. I also eat it as a side with grilled chicken and roasted veggies, use it as refried beans with fajitas, even eat it with a spoon directly from the pan! When I prepare it, I make at least a double recipe so that I have it in the fridge at all times. If there is any other South Beach dish that Is better, I'm in trouble!
