      Easy and yummy! 1 serving recipes are perfect for me, since not everyone at home is as adventurous in trying out different kinds of food. I used only 1/2 cup of onions since 1 cup seemed a tad much for 1 person! I also substituted Tabasco with a green chili sauce that I had, and added 1/4 tsp of salt. This dish will be a regular with me from now on. Thanks!

      Very easy and healthy to make. I doubled the recipe and it's just the right amount for 2 servings as a main dish. I think I overdid the Tabasco ;) - make sure to add some to taste, as the cayenne already gives it a kick. I also added salt and pepper, and was able to use a whole can of corn since I doubled the recipe. I will be making this again
