This was very good. I took it to a family gathering along with a crock pot dip (cream cheese/chili/cheddar dip, and this salsa went fairly well...but everyone went nuts over the other one. I liked this a lot, but probably will keep looking for that WOW salsa for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I didn't give it a 5 star rating only because I did not follow the recipe exactly. (I never do! I had never made salsa before and used this as a base to learn from. I used canned black beans, less lime, and added some pineapple. Totally yummy. Can't wait to make it again with some more of my own variations! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a great recipe....so easy & the taste is amazing. I serve this with soft tacos & shredded Tex Mex chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This a delicious salsa that was very easy to make. It tasted great fresh and awesome the next day too. I added a little more lime (love lime!), used canned black beans, and used two cartons of cherry tomatoes (diced up). Would taste great over fajita veggies and rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe yesterday and it tastes great! I'm glad I set aside plenty of time for chopping and dicing! It took much longer than 20 minutes to prepare. I also added a Green Giant Extra Sweet Corn. You microwave it right in the bag, let it cool to room temperature and stir it in. So colorful! A teaspoon of sugar gave the salsa some gentleness. I made the entire batch but put it into two bowls so I could regulate the amount of Jalape?os. Now my granddaughter will have her own milder version and grandpa will be happy with the peppers. I'll make this recipe again with the changes I mentioned above. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Served this and everyone loved it. I did use canned black beans that I drained and made 1/2 the recipe but did put in 2 jalapenos for extra kick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a great recipe that was enjoyed by everyone! The recipe makes more than expected. I adjusted it by using two cans of black beans, rinsed well in the strainer. I didn't have enough time to cook the beans and don't think the recipe was negatively affected. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this for a 4th of July party and it was gone by the dinner time! A lot of compliments. Next time I'm going to put less cilantro, as it had too much of a cilantro taste for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This salsa was absolutely fantastic -- the best I've ever tasted -- the flavors blended perfectly together and I couldn't stop eating it. Although I used canned black beans, it was still excellent!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very easy to make...especially with a cuisinart. The hardest part was actually boiling the beans until tender. I found that it was very bitter with the onions and cilantro. For my taste I would have added less. Unfortunately I didn't add to taste so I actually had to add some sugar to make it less bitter. But if you like the taste of onions and cilantro I'm sure it would have been great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
