I serve it with sour cream (or plain no fat greek yogurt) and cheddar cheese on top.  I also make corn bread to serve with it.  You can also serve it over white rice for a different type of dish completely.  If you want to have meat in it, add ground beef or ground turkey or shredded chicken.  So delicious!!!  Enjoy!
