These were so good. I made them as written and didn't change a thing. And I will make these again, and I won't change anything then either. I served these with Grilled Rum-Soaked Shrimp, and I thought them made a wonderful side dish. I could eat these as a main dish too though, perhaps with a spicy cocktail sauce or other dipping sauce. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Mandy ny.
