    To lower sodium, I'd rinse the beans (as already mentioned), substitute steamed frozen corn (or fresh!) for the canned, omit the salt and add lime juice for added zing. Will try this this week, sounds yummy! - 6/28/09

    I made this for dinner tonight. Family LOVED it!! I used kidney beans because I was out of black beans. I used reduced sodium beans and no salt added corn. I didnt add salt either.

    If you rinse the canned beans with water before using them, it helps to lower the sodium count! - 6/8/07

    very good, I used roasted red peppers and roasted my green pepper, corn and red onion. I also added a bit of Emeril's southwestern essence. It turned out awesome! - 2/14/09

    this is very good; the dried red pepper gives it a little bite; unsure how much so used 1/4 teaspoon. Omitted salt. Recipe makes 6 cups; two cups a serving. Will definitely make it again. - 7/12/11

    I added some garlic and cilantro, but even as is this was delicious! I eat with baked tostitos, cucumbers or over fresh spinach as a salad. - 9/7/10

  • I love this recipe. I've also used it with a mango in place of maybe the peppers (can't recall right now) to give it a Hawaiian flavor and used a lime marinade on the chicken. - 1/23/12

  • Makes enough to feed a party (so use a big bowl) but it was very tastey! I wrapped it up with salad in a pita (yum).
    I think I'll make it again for a thanksgiving appetizer! - 11/14/08

  • Instead of regular tomato salsa, I use Trader Joe's Corn Salsa. It has it own seasonings and a little kick to boot. I also substitute 2 cans of black beans for the garbanzo and fresh corn instead of the canned. Yummy! - 5/18/07
