This is very good. My boyfriend's family reunion his cousin makes it (slightly different but, the same idea and it rocks.. She also adds cilantro it adds great flavor. Try it before you knock it you wont be unhappy!
Mmmmmm - this is addictive stuff! I used plain petite diced tomatoes but upped the jalapenos a bit - also used the pre-chopped stuff that comes in a jar. I didn't add any additional tomato and thought that worked fine. My avocado didn't ripen on time, so I only got to have the leftovers with avocado. Fabulous stuff! I like it because it's a great appetizer, but you don't just eat it mindlessly because of its kick.
This was fabulous and EASY! I made it for a party, it makes a good amount and everyone loved it!!
It was good but not great. A lot of potential though. I would double the beans and remove the corn. The dressing was a little much too. Just some red wine vinegar (maybe 1/4 cup) would have done perfect. I used a fresh jalapeno instead of the pickled kind. I think my next iteration will be awesome.
I made this for our company picnic and of course it was a big hit!
