I usually double or triple this recipe, because people can't stop eating it. It is not only delicious, it's also a very nice looking salad. Great for taking with you to a party. But be careful - it has a kick!
"Terrific. I needed a proteiny vegan dish, so I used quinoa instead of pasta, and even the die-hard carnivore at my table liked it! The seasonings, texture, color--everything about this was wonderful. (I also cheated a bit--not everyone in my family likes super-spicy, so I omitted the hot sauce and put the Texas Pete bottle on the table for anyone who wanted it.) This made it to my "favorites" list; I'm sure I'll make it again."- BlueJayPie

Lyala 3 weeks agoVery easy to prepare and very tasty! However, I doubled the quantity because I wanted to make sure I had left.overs. We ate so much cause it was so good. It makes an excellent covered dish when you need to contribute one.
Vicki79 1 month agoI won a cook off with this awesome pasta! I did however leave out the tomatoes and avocado and I added some Mrs. Dash table blend and extra cumin and hot sauce!!!
kelchrisc 2 months agoI substituted some salsa with cilantro and cooked that with the black beans, corn, and other ingredients first. I also used vegetable pasta. It smells wonderful and looks very colorful. Once it cools, I will add the avocado. Thumbs up on the taste test.
hungryamzilla 3 months agoIt was good. I didn't use cilantro though. Good to have in the winter when you're in the mood for something light to eat.

jokergod2000 7 months agoDamn this was good. The reviews said it was great but it was better than I expected! I will make it again for sure. I might try it with a bit of cheddar cheese on too.
kyjaxmom 10 months agoI made this for a bbq but I did not put in the pasta instead I added another can of black beans. It was a big hit, some people were eating it with tortilla chips like a dip. Side dish or dip it was a light and delicious item.
