Very tasty! It was easy to make and the taste was wonderful. I followed the recipe except I used black beans instead of black olives (just a personal preference). I will definitely be making this again...yum. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent recipe. Made a few changes by using low sodium black beans, corn and tomatoes. It freezes well for future meals too!!
