I'd have given this recipe five stars even without my additions to it. As a cook, I know this works just as it is. There are two things that a person does with food when they are poor and have relatively no money....the first is to buy things that are cheap, the second is to get mileage on them. One of the great things about his recipe is it can do both. And in keeping with the spirit of the recipe I added leftover onions, bacon, and olives. The recipe didn't say whether or not the corn was to be drained first, and I did that because I wanted more of a 'pan fried' drier consistency to it rather than a soupy consistency. I also only used 1 TBSP of oil (and only for the potatoes). Next time I'm going to add bell peppers, and instead of plain red-pepper flakes...I'm going to use smoked red-pepper flakes. This is a wonderfully versatile recipe. Options I have already thought of include scrambling the eggs, tossing them in and doing a 'pan fried' version of a tortilla wrap...and it can always go in between two slices of toasted sourdough bread. This is a really great recipe and it is going into my recipe box for keeps.
