"This is super good and a crowd pleaser. I love it as it is, without any changes. Other times I add proteins or pasta to stretch it out. No matter, it gets raves. It's a very adaptable recipe."

"So delicious! I made three changes, I used a quarter teaspoon of sugar which was more than enough, I broiled the corn in the oven to make it more flavorful, and I used only half an onion. As a lover of onions, even I thought that one whole onion was a little excessive."

"Wonderful. So versatile.Such a great guideline to play with. Have made this several times now, and each time I change a small thing. I have added jalapenos one time, and left out the cilantro (because I was out), used fresh tomatoes, turned out great. Another time I used an Italian canned tomato. You cant go wrong. I do cut the recipe in half as Im feeding 2, not 8. Tastes even better the next day."

"Everytime I make this I get rave reviews! Easy to make- delicious and you can make it using all canned ingredients. (use petite diced tomatoes, drained). Whenever I make this, I ask myself why I waited so long to make it again!"
