      I just made a modified version of this with what I had on hand, and it was so yummy! I made it as a side dish using potatoes, onions, jalapeno, and garlic. I left the seeds of the jalapeno for some heat and seasoned with cumin, chile de arbol, and garlic powder. I put a dollop of crema mexicana (mexican sour cream) on the side to balance the heat with the yummy creamy-ness. Thanks for the inspiration!!
