    Very tasty; crunchy with a nice tang to it. I didn't have a chilli to hand so I used a tsp of mild chilli powder and it probably could have taken more, or a hotter powder.  -  24 Apr 2015

    With only one red pepper, onion and jalapeno mixed in with a 15oz can of garbanzo beans, I knew I'd need another can of beans. I don't know how anyone could use 4 bell peppers and still expect to find a chickpea on their fork!!! This was fresh and easy to make, but I changed the recipe a lot (leaving out 3 peppers, adding another can of beans). Maybe I shouldn't even have reviewed it??  -  19 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
