    Nice and spicey! It was easy to put together and I like the fact that it can be used by itself as a salad or a topping over fish, an ingredient in a vegetarian taco/burrito or eaten with pita chips! - 5/5/08

    I really liked it! I also like that its very versatile, you can make it hotter or milder depending on the taste and it wouldn't alter the nutrition too much. Thanks for the recipe! - 5/11/08

    Rotel is a brand name of tomatoes spiced w/ green chiles... comes in mild and hot.

    Rotel is a brand name, like Dole or Green Giant.

    I think it costs approx. $1 per can. - 4/10/13

    VERY yummy!! Looks nice, too! I got lots of compliments on it from the company last night-- well worth the 5 minutes I put into making it!! LOL. Oh--and I had so substitute lemon juice for the lime, and it still was very tasty!! - 3/8/08

    This is a delicious, healthy salsa. The fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro really make it. I might try it with a "mild" rotel next time, so it's a little less spicy. I used this to make soft tacos with grilled shrimp on whole wheat tortillas. I added fat free sour cream and low fat shredded chedder - 2/15/08

    I'd read somewhere (reliable) that canned tomatoes have a bad chemical in them, and that tomatoes canned in GLASS jars are better (or, of course, fresh!). I'd probably go with a jar of salsa (Herdez is good), and then throw in the extra veggies. :) - 4/10/13

    Excellent recipe. I made it with lemon juice, since I was out of lime & no cilantro. I also added some ground cumin. LOVED IT - 3/21/13

    Does anyone know how much 1 serving is (tbsp, 1/4 cup, etc.)? I know it says it makes 15 servings, but not sure how much each one of those is. They have something like this at Trader Joe's that is wonderful! - 12/9/12
