"quick side for a Mexican dinner. I made it as a side for Fajitas. I agree with the other post that a smidge more salsa may be good. I may also omit the avocado next time. I didn't think it added to the overall flavor of the dish."

"Yum! We made this last night as a side to enchiladas and it is excellent. I thought it was a little dry so next time I will add more salsa though."
