So yummy! A great side dish. This is your dish if you need to put more effort into a another dish. I used oil packed sun dried tomatoes and put the tomatoes b/n a couple of paper towels to soak up the oil. No need to soak if you used the oil packed tomatoes. I love the zing of the green chilies. This was wonderful!
