“I served this with quesadillas, and it was so good!! Everyone in the family like it, even a five year old! I omitted the jalapenos and added the corn. My family wants me to make this every week now”

“Family loves this recipe. I add organic canned corn for an added crunch, and a ripe mango for sweetness. You can adjust the heat by how much jalapeño you put in. Highly recommend this for anyone.”
