Such a fun recipe. It can easily be adjusted to the vegetables on hand. I spice it up a bit with hot sauce, hot peppers etc. at home but I make it as is printed for pot lucks. Thanks for sharing Cookin-Jo.

Oh wow, this came out very delectable. The only change I made was using pickled jalapenos instead of mild green chilies and skipping the red pepper flakes as a result. I must say this side dish tastes as great as it looks so I would highly recommend it whenever you're trying to impress someone. Thank you.

The recipe has the ingredients we enjoy & we weren't disappointed. I scaled to 2-3 servings, I also used canned corn (one 10oz can drained) & it worked well. Substituted essence spice for the pepper flakes also. Did the rest as written & we thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks for sharing.
