MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2013

"I made this for a work luncheon and everyone loved it. Although I tripled some of the items. Kept 1 sm onion, did 1 1/2 jalapeno, 3 cans beans and tripled the spices. On the hot pepper sauce all I had in the cabinet was habanero sauce so I used that. Again a big hit for spicing up a can."
