Everyone loved this, I used Mexican oregano in place of the dried parsley that I didn't have and also added a tsp. of Ancho Chili powder. Definitely a keeper.
Easy to make. I blended the salsa and Rotel because the kids don't like "chunks". They all loved it. Served over rice
So simple and easy! The beans and corn made such a filling, flavorful salsa that I didn't even serve with the rice.
Easy to make as I had all of the ingredients in the pantry. Decent dish, I'll definitely make it again if I'm short on time. Thanks for the recipe!
I only used one can of black beans, doubled the corn, and added cilantro and lime juice.
