I made this and it was good. I made a few Tweeks and turned it into great! went light on the salt, had used it in the salsa that has been home made (tomatoes,garlic, onions,1/2-1 cap of vinager, celentro, repalced green chilies with 1/4-1/2 cup green peppers both hot and regular,salt,pepper mix well together) and if was fixing it for breakfast I left out the corn. If for dinner, left the corn and added drained sweet peas to the mix!
