MY REVIEW

Excellent recipe--just as it is; fully 5-star. I wanted to lower the sodium some, so I cooked a half pound of dried black beans instead of using canned. It was a great hit at our company picnic.

MY REVIEW

This was quite good. I brought it to a party and got complements on it. I don't like salsa and I thought it was tasty. I left out the jalapeno pepper as I don't like spicy things but it still tasted good.
