    It tastes good but it's an awful lot of work for what's essentially salsa with beans and corn.

    This is a really good veggie meal. It's a lot like a meatless version of taco soup. Of course you could always add some ground turkey or chicken which would be delicious, but I found this very hearty. Served with some brown rice. I will make this one again.

    I like to add garbanzo beans as well and sometimes left over roast beef shredded.

    We have made this recipe for a few years now and it's often requested by friends. I always serve it with either cheese quesadillas or cornbread and sometimes put beef stew meat in and it's like a chili. We use it for a bean dip for tortilla chips and the kids even eat it. It's a family staple, especially in the cold months. Makes a nice warm comfort food...yum!

    also - add a bunch or cup or so of chopped fresh (or maybe a tbsp or 2 dried) Cilantro (coriander) or epazote if you can find it - which will reduce or even eliminate the gas some get from eating beans! plus gives it a nice fresh citrus-y flavor

    I decided to add my own Mexican spices like dried/ground ancho chili and mexican oregano (since we are in Texas I have these on hand) - also added browned ground beef cooked with onion/garlic/and the same Mexican spices - then skipped step #3 - was delicious! Also, you can serve this with some type of rice for a very hungry family! I used brown - but could use white (arroz blanco) or Spanish - or maybe fideos? and/or cornbread - the extra starches help stretch the meal, therefore the budget!

    i was not a fan of this recipe-- it lacked flavor and authenticity, perhaps just a little too simple...

    I tried this and it was excellent although not that kid friendly with the cumin smell.

    I reduced the water to 1.5 cups and simmered for longer. DELICIOUS for lunch the next day!

    I would definitely reduce the amount of water added. Much too watery as is. Otherwise delicious.
