    Manami's Note:

    This Cajun dish, similar to succotash, pairs well with rice & seafood or chicken. This version comes from the Commander's Palace in New Orleans. This was first published in Saveur Magazine, issue # 119. We were testing different dishes for our Cafe Ponce, here at the home, and I saw this and we tested it and it became an instant hit! (The only thing we didn't include was the jalapeno! - Too bad, they don't know what they missed!) We made four batches - two and two.;)
