This recipe feeds a whole family - I am a mother of three so I appreciate that. This tastes even better the next day! I took it to work and had all my friends coming in to my office asking what I was eating at lunch. It reminds me of a shrimp/fishless ceviche. YUM!

I loved this. However, i like things on the spicy side, so I added 1/2 pablano pepper, chopped, 1/2 anehiem pepper, chopped, smoked paprika, ground chipote peppers, ground ancho chilli peppers and topped it with chunks of avocado. I also did not add the tomatos until serving time
to individaul bowls. (they tend to make their own juice) I also roasated my tomatos, jaleopena
pepper, garlic and corn. When reheating the rice i added some of the diced tomatos with it..then added the black bean/corn mixture with some avocado on top. will definately make this again!! =)

i used instant rice cooked in broth for i am a lazy monkey. i also skipped the cilantro as i'm firmly in the "hate" camp but i added half a green bell pepper instead which was very nice. used frozen corn and halved the whole recipe. if i remember correctly i added a little sour cream and shredded cheddar and minced the jalapeno in my garlic grinder. used powdered chipotle pepper as i was out of tabasco. it didn't turn out as spicy as i thought it would. next time i might add more jalapeno. course that may just be that mine happened to be a milder one. i added some garlic powder as well, i think. this was a lovely blend of spicy, sweet, and satisfying. definitely baja, not mexican, which is a nice change. i was going to put this in lettuce wraps but forgot all about it. next time i guess. will certainly make again. i'm looking for more ways to make beans tasty since i hate them but they're SO good for me. may try adding some shredded veggie chicken next time. leftover guacamole might be nice in this too.

I love this recipe..I always make too much of it but it never gets wasted. I put extra lime in it but I like the citrus mixed with the corn.

We loved this! Added a little salt and my BF said to leave out the cilantro next time, but I love cilantro. I used a can of rotel (drained) in place of tomatoes. Was so good with chicken and tortillas! Thank you it's a keeper.

Yum! This is so good! I used half the rice and mixed everything together. I only had one tomato, so I used that and a can of regular diced tomatoes drained. I didn't use the jalapeno because I served it to people who don't like their food too spicy. Really flavorful and I've already got some good ideas on how I'm going to use this recipe again. Thanks!
