    We did not care for this. Next time it would be nice to try some sweet spices instead of chili powder.

    Wonderful, easy dish and kids love it too. Add a dash of cumin and cayenne for a spicier kick, or cinnamon and clove for a sweeter spice.

    This is a great, quick, easy side. A great sub for potatoes.
