This was very good! I made a few changes to make this a light meal instead of a side dish. I added two boneless/skinless chicken thighs (diced, which I cooked with frozen black eyed peas instead of canned, then I rinsed the black eyes peas and chicken). This would also work with pre-cooked/grilled chicken breast. I also added avocado and sweet corn. I cut the sugar in half, but it was still a little too sweet for me - next time I would use either sweet corn or sugar, but not both. To cut the sweetness and add spice (I didn't have any jalapenos on hand), I added about 1 tsp of hot sauce, some red pepper flakes, and I squeezed some lime juice just before serving. This was yummy, and a beautiful, colorful presentation for an outdoor, summer/spring evening dinner! I also made a kid-friendly batch with no onion, garlic, or peppers, which 2 out of 3 of my kids enjoyed.
