Yum, yum, yum, yum....can I say just one more time?-YUM! My family loved this recipe and ate it with every dinner for days! For personal tastes, we switched the black beans with sliced black olives, but it would have been fantastic either way! It was easy to throw together and tasted so fresh and fun (like a fiesta would taste, I assume!) :) We loved the addition of the cheese as well. Thanks so much for a new fav. to add to the rotation!

Love, Love, Love this recipe! Thank you for the idea...tweaked it a bit using Rose's Lime juice instead of lemon and I use about 3/4 of a packet of Fajita seasoning. Great as a main dish or side. So quick and easy!

This is a very yummy twist on pasta salad that we all enjoyed. The beans, corn and bell pepper go great together and the cheese is a nice addition, too. I made my own seasoning mix, but felt 1 ts was not enough, so next time Ill probably double that.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a quick, easy and healthy recipe with us, Jeanelle!

This makes a really nice lunch! I followed the recipe as written, using garlic powder rather than the seasoning packet. I was a bit worried that the salad would be dry because of its relative lack of oil or dressing, but it really wasn't...I guess because of the veggies. Thanks for posting this!

I'd made this before, but nobody really liked it because the onion was so overpowering. This time, I only used about 1 Tablespoon of it, with 1 Tablespoon ranch dressing and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in place of the seasoning mixes recommended here. It was very well received this time around, and a nice change from your traditional Greek pasta salad.

I absolutely love this, but I did have to make a few changes to suit my taste. I used 1/2 a small red onion and shocked it in ice water to mellow the flavor. I used lime juice in the marinade (2T along with 2T olive oil). I couldn't find the spicy seasoning mix, so I used taco seasoning, but only about 1/2 the package. No cilantro for me and about double the cheese. It was just right, and it's going into my permanent file. Thanks much!

This recipe was dry and way to salty with just the olive oil, lemon juice, and dressing mix. I had to add mayo and salsa to it to cut the flavor of the salt and give it a little moisture. The base of the salad is great, but the dressing left a lot to be desired for us. Thanks for posting.

Yum! I did not rinse the pasta/corn to cool and stirred in the ingredients while still warm. This melted the cheese a little. I also put salsa on top to add a little kick.
