Sugarhouse Barbecue does a good garlic roasted red potato with generous amounts of good olive oil. I like that one the best of "hot side dishes.    In a more traditional vein, fried okra, hush puppies/corn bread/biscuit, even macaroni and cheese-I personally find that an odd pairing.    For the okra, you're probably looking at pre-fab freezer case. That's not a terrible thing in this case. I'm quite fond of  hush puppies and they're pretty quick to...
I like to make it with some sofrito (the goya brand stuff in a jar is fine) and some chopped stuffed manzanilla olives with capers (al caparrado)

Probably for tomorrow, maybe Monday.     And some    Plus some extra seasoning. But those two ingredients are the basis of Pibil style dishes. 
I'm a long timer on BF. My account dates back to the origin in Oct 98. I don't visit or post much there now. Once a month usually.
Brand is not as important as quality of construction, the thickness of the base and so on. Those are things you should know as well from back home.   For basic stainless cookware, Tramontina is a good brand with good performance for the price. Most Tramontina is from Brazil.
