  • Sounds great and I love that it's going in the slow cooker. Because I'm doing very low sodium and sugar, would make a taco blend to taste, commercial blends are too high in salt. Corn from a cob is easy and tastes so much better. If not making salsa, I'd really look at nutrition facts for dif brands - 7/21/11
