"This recipe has been a favorite since the first time I made it. I can't eat green peppers and I didn't have any jalapenos, so I substituted a regular (tiny) can of chopped green chilies for all of the other peppers. I made a mistake and used a full teaspoon of coriander the first time I made it, and it was delicious. The lime juice makes the whole thing. That surprised me, but it is what it is. My friends love this as much as I do!"

"This is a very excellent recipe that can be tweeked to suite your own taste. I left out the jalapenos, used white onion, dried cilantro, and no corriander. I also added a dash of apple cider vinegar along with the lime juice and it took on a wonderful sweet flavor. It takes only minutes to make and is simply delicious!"
