Good ideas for vegetable-based side dishes to go with Mexican food? (other than beans)

I'm often at a loss for side dishes to serve with Mexican / Latin American food. I know that beans and rice are always traditional, but sometimes I don't want to serve beans (for instance, if the main dish is a black bean soup) or there may already be plenty of starch in the meal (like when I make chilaquiles
). In these situations, I usually end up serving a salad or some sauteed greens -- which are good, but they don't always seem to go well with the rest of the food on the plate.
I know about calabacitas
, but what other side dishes tend to go well with these flavors?
