Sure, I could write about how they are creamy, spicy, and sweet all at the same time, they make the perfect side for just about any protein, and they come together in literally 10 minutes and in one pot.

But really, all you need to know is they are delicious and are just as good hot as they are eaten cold standing over the stove, not that I would know anything about that.

Make them!
