Stovetop Method

1. Place the onions in a nonstick skillet and sauté over medium- heat, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and stir.

Cook for about 12 minutes more, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are cooked through. Add more liquid 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time as needed, to keep the vegetables from sticking to the pan.

4. Add the hot sauce (if using), and stir. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Top with chopped cilantro and serve.
