    This was amazing! I did tweek it a bit to really bump up the flavor. First I used fresh corn that I wrapped in tin foil with spices and butter and placed it on the grill. I marinated shrimp in the recipe spices and oil and also grilled them. I used organic spicy black beans. Also used peach salsa like another reviewer suggested. Served over Jasmine rice and it was out of this world!!!

    Wonderful flavors! Husband said this needs to become a regular. Planned to eat leftovers chilled for lunch - but no leftovers! I used fresh garlic instead of garlic salt. Also used slightly less salsa and did add fire roasted red peppers. Served with sliced avacado on top. Perfecto! Could easily scoop into fresh corn tortillas, too.

    Delicious and Healthy! My 9 yr old son and 4 year old daugher loved it. It took about 15 minutes from pan to table. A great weekday meal.

    Truly one of my favorite CL recipes. I make this a lot throughout the summer, and honestly can't get enough of it. Don't tweak much except that I use fresh corn and double the beans (organic). Also, the first few times I made it, I only had garlic powder so I used that. I like the idea of using fresh garlic and probably won't use garlic salt simply b/c I don't want to increase the salt content and b/c the flavor seems fantastic already. Best of all, this recipe comes together in a flash. LOVE IT!!

    Because I was making this dish for someone that can't handle very much spice I omitted the salsa and squeezed a fresh lime over the shrimp mixture instead. Added chopped green cabbage and served with warm corn tortillas. It was delicious, super easy, and I will definitely be making it again.

    I used fresh corn cut off the cob, added slices of red bell pepper, and 2 cloves of garlic instead of garlic salt. Served with a Mexican flavored rice. Tasted delicious!!

    Delicious and super easy. I added some Paprika and onion powder to the mix. I too used minced garlic instead of the garlic salt. I reserved about half of the spice mix and added that to the beans and corn. Use a good chunky Pico de Gallo or salsa. I omitted the Cilantro. Along with a little brown rice and siracha sauce in a warm tortilla...yummy. This would also make a great base for any protein especially chicken or fish.

    Quick weeknight meal to prepare. Also would be great for lunch the next day served cold. Followed recipe exactly but served with crusty bread on side. May add jalapeño or use salsa with more spice next time for added heat
