This is out of this world! I cut the sugar in half used rice vinegar and used sweet yellow canned corn and regular onion - it was delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't specify - but be sure to drain liquid from beans and corn before dumping into salsa (some people might not know better just thought I'd share). This could also be a nice side dish as well without chips. It's fabulous! Read More

This salsa just isn't for us. It is entirely too sweet for me even after reducing the amount of sugar. In order to save all of these beautiful vegetables and beans I added a heafty sprinkling of hot sauce and garlic powder. This helped but it was still much too sweet. Thanks anyway! Read More

I've brought this to several parties and it's a hit every time! The only change I make is I use 1/2 the amount of sugar the recipe calls for and I find that I have to drain 99% the liquid before serving. Also try adding avocado but it's good with or without that! Read More

Great taste but a little too much sugar with red wine vinegar. I added fresh basil. YUM! Read More

I followed the instructions exactly with great results. It does make a big batch so buy plenty of chips! I served the salsa with blue corn chips--yummy! Read More

Fantastic! I had something like this at a party recently and could not stop thinking about it; this is really close to what I had. I also used half the amount of sugar and super-sweet corn. I used a whole red onion but that's your prerogative. I don't know if there's a difference between "rice wine vinegar" and "rice vinegar" but I used rice vinegar because it was all I had and it was delicious. Read More

I too cut the amount of sugar in half. I found that this was perfect. I also added cilantro for that extra something and I loved it. Read More

If you cut sugar way down add red wine vinegar instead of rice vinegar and touch of cumin and cilantro it rates a five! Read More

Good thing this recipe is huge - I sampled it the night before serving & ended up eating half of it! As suggested used half the sugar and was awesome & a big hit at the party! Thanks! Read More

This was really good! I made this as a side dish to go along with some carnitas we were having and this paired perfectly. I scaled the recipe to just 2 servings using half a can of black beans and half a can of regular yellow corn. I eyeballed the other ingredients and just threw in what looked about right. My scaled recipe called for 2 T. plus 2 t. of sugar but I only used 2 t. in mine. That was as sweet as we wanted it. I also added just a bit of vegetable oil which I think improved the mouth feel of this. So my advice is to scale way back on the sugar and add it to taste and you have a winner here! Read More
