I love these because they cook so quickly (10, 15 minutes?  something
like that ...).  What I usually do with them is to boil them with 
some vegie buillion, and then when they're all soft, add salsa to 
taste, and use it as a spread on toast.  It's a great spread to keep 
on hand in the refrigerator.
