Very good! I made just a few changes; used one can of corn instead of frozen. I also added chopped green onlions and put the whole thing together at once rather than wait to add the cilantro. I didn't have parsley so that was not added. I'm serving this on tostitos for a pre-dinner snack.

This is a great recipe! I slightly altered the proportions: a little over a cup of corn, a 19 oz can of black beans, and 1/2 a red pepper, and it turned out just fine. Made it to accompany quesadillas for a Mexican-themed dinner party. Thanks for sharing.

This was a very awesome break from normal veggies! Had rave reviews from my family. I cooked it and served it warm, it was just as fantastic! I did add a couple of tbsp of chopped onion. Thanks for the break in the monotony of frozen veggies! I can't wait to serve it again!
