Made this up tonite to fill the need for a quick side. I used some small sweet peppers I had leftover from grilling the other nite. Roasted garlic would be delicious in here as well.If I'd had green onions on hand I would have used those instead of onion powder to add more color and texture as well as flavor! They came out a little softer than I would have liked. Next time, I'll cook a little less and mash a little less.
