I loved this dish. I was having recipe #27475 and was looking for a side dish and so glad I came across this one. I made as directed but added Rotel in place of the Mexican style stewed tomatoes as I didn't have any. Such a nice spicy dish and so easy to make. I served this on top of Jasmine rice. Thanks so much for sharing. Will make this one again.
