This was quick and easy to adapt with ingredients that I had on hand. I added a can of black beans and used a can of diced tomatoes with zesty jalepenios in place of the chopped tomatoe and green chiles. I didn't have a can of creamed corn so I added frozen corn kernals instead. I didn't have half and half either so I thickened up some 2% milk with a flower and butter rue. I used a dash of cayenne pepper and a shake of smoked paprika instead of the tobascoe because I don't like the flavor of tobascoe.
