I have no idea what took me so long to post this recipe, but it's one I make pretty often and have made for years. Blogging recipes helps me to find them when I want to cook so now I don't have to go looking through my files for this.
I like it as a side dish with Lomo Saltado and other main dishes. I'm always sad if I make it and we don't have leftovers because I also like to warm the leftovers up in a skillet til it gets just a little toasted and eat it with an egg. I have made this so long that I don't remember where I found it, but I know I added the garlic and fresh salsa to the recipe, so that's optional.
