    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

    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

    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

  • Very tasty and different, Couldn't figure out what rotel was until I googled it,none in any stores here, but for a sub DelMonte makes a diced tomato with chipotle chilies. I think fresh tomato with chopped peppers in the summer would be good also. I used some to stuff mushrooms and grill, yum! - 6/20/14

  • This is absolutely delicious as written. Would have given it 5 stars but the salt content is too high for me. I will definitely will make again subbing lo-sodium tomatoes, green chilis, and lo-sodium black beans. - 6/19/14

  • You might want to add "tomatoes" after "1 can Rotel"--since there may be some readers who aren't familiar with the brand. Just a thought. :)

    It does look like a good recipe, though I will likely add more spices/seasonings to it. Can't wait to try it! - 4/30/14

  • Awesome! I added a second can of Rotel to it, which made it seem less bean-y and more salsa-like. Next time I will try a pinch of minced garlic. Definitely best to make it overnight to let the flavors mingle. - 3/11/14

  • This has got to be one of the simplest and most useful heathy recipes you'll ever find. Minutes and a can opener. Makes a great dip or as a relish with cooked veggies. Or top anything, salads, baked fish or chicken, tacos, burritos, burger. Or add into rice or couscous. Never goes to waste. - 10/3/13

  • Easy to make. Used fresh black beans and frozen corn to save on some of the sodium. Instead of the whole can of Rotel (which is too spicy for my family), I used about 2/3rds and it tasted perfect. Yum! - 9/7/13

  • I omitted the Rotel and added chopped jalapeno and onion. The lime juice helps some but I had to add just a dash of salt and a little garlic powder as well. I guess we just like it spiced up here in Texas. However, a good solid recipe that can be adjusted to taste! Thank you. - 7/1/13
