"I made this today. My husband really liked it. We added it to tortillas with sour cream and Mexican blend cheese. It cooked for 12 hours on low but I put the chicken in frozen. It probably didn't need to cook for 12 hours but something came up. I didn't have a can of rotel so I used one can of diced tomatoes and a small can of green chilies. I also added some cilantro and ancho chili powder as recommended below. To lower the sodium I used bush's sodium beans and they stayed intact."
"It was good, not great. Kind of "bland" but haven't figured out how to spice it up."
"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."
