This was intriguing, because I make a black bean and corn salad from this site, and so I know that we like the combination. I guess the salad kind of spoiled us, because it is sort of "zingy" from balsamic vinegar. This recipe was good, and I feel everyone should have some "desperation" dinners they can pull out of the pantry and have ready in a few minutes. However, this was was a little bland for us. DH actually put some balsamic vinegar on his, and he said he liked it better. It's a pretty dish, without any heat, but I would add lime instead of lemon, some garlic and a few drops of balsamic vinegar to liven it up a little.

Simple, healthy and easy recipe that my entire family enjoyed. Perfect summer dish. I didn't change a thing.

This was delicious. The family loved it. The black bean and corn mixture really made the dish! I plan on using it for other dishes, it could be good just by itself. This is a keeper!

This is such a fantastic recipe! I often bulk it out a bit by using more onion, a couple of different colored peppers etc; adding a can of pinto beans doesn't hurt either. More often that not I make it more as a stew - dice up the chicken into bite-sized pieces, brown them in olive oil, then throw in the rest of the ingredients (except the avocado, of course) and let it do its thing. Great with regular white rice, and the leftovers are superb in warm flour tortillas. So good!

Haven't found a Goya recipe that has failed me yet! This is full of flavor and full of freshness! The Goya Black Beans mixed with all the fresh vegetables became a Summer Easy Dinner at it's best. Don't change a thing, don't forget the lemon at the end and like I always say if Green had a flavor it would taste like cilantro. Green things up!

Colorful. Flavorful. Guilt-free. I LOVE cooking food like this! This dish was very easy to prepare, and it tasted so good! I'll make it again and again! Served it with Goya Yellow Aroz. Comida Buena!

Great recipe; the only changes I did was to leave out the cilantro (hubby doesn't like it) and I added a can of diced tomatoes.
