    I had this at someones house & loved it. They never gave me the recipe. Glad I found it here. I'll garnish with some avacado slices. I'm saving this & plan to make for company as my husband & son won't eat it. Thanks for sharing. - 8/6/10

    Loved this recipe! I did add some cucumber, a Haas avocado, more cumin and DAKs southwest seasoning which added to the already delicious meal! Adding the avocado adds approximately 50 calories per serving, but worth it to me! - 3/8/13

    Made this for some company because their daughter is a vegetarian. I liked the black bean with the cumin - nice combination. Next time I'll try adding the avocado, sounds like it would make it even better. - 8/1/19

    I followed the directions pretty well. I really liked it. Family thought it needed something--more red pepper? I will make it again!! - 6/20/12
