Tabasco adds a great touch to this easy, inexpesive meal. My mother is from Puerto Rico and they made this often when funds were low since it went a long way and tasted great. This dish is served with the rice on the bottom and the corned beef spooned on top. Sometimes a fried egg is served on top for variation. Buen Provecho!
