    Recipe Tips

    For a more filling meal, mix 2 cups of shredded, cooked chicken or shrimp into the skillet in Step 3. Alternatively, you can serve this side dish with a lean cut of cooked meat, fish or poultry and a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite dressing.

    To enhance the flavor even more, sauté 1 package (8 oz) sliced mushrooms along with the onion.
