El Chico use to serve a dish similar to this. Serve it as a side dish or as a condiment with your enchiladas, chile, or beans.

I cooked and marinated these as the recipe said, then briefly reheated them to serve with a standing rib roast by Bobbiegirl. These had lots of flavour were easy, and I will reserve my final judgement until I serve them cold as suggested! Thanks for another yummy recipe Ann.
