    DELICIOUS! the easiest thing I've made in a long time. I didn't use green peppers BUT put in diced green onions instead. I also added a dollop of fat free sour cream to my serving. Now it's on my permanent menu at home! Took it to a pot luck and people went crazy! THANK YOU!! - 9/22/08

    Sister made this today for company. I have eaten it twice. For dinner with sliced chicken and for supper with feta cheese added. Delicious as can be both times. - 8/26/10

    I tried this recipe for company at lunch today. It went over with many raves. I used a fresh salsa and put the salsa on the table to go with the salad. Served the salad on a bed of organic spring mix lettuce. - 8/26/10

    I really liked it! I used salsa verde and added canned tomatoes and only used 1/2 the oil and 1/2 the corn. Thanks much - it will be a staple for me. - 3/24/10

    An overflowing half cup or about the size of your hand.

  • Ok...so, I made this for a party but I tweaked it using a lot of the other posters suggestions. I used tortellini pasta and kidney beans instead of what is called for. DEEElicious! - 7/11/09
