    This is very good. My boyfriend's family reunion his cousin makes it (slightly different but, the same idea and it rocks.. She also adds cilantro it adds great flavor. Try it before you knock it you wont be unhappy!  -  16 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Mmmmmm - this is addictive stuff! I used plain petite diced tomatoes but upped the jalapenos a bit - also used the pre-chopped stuff that comes in a jar. I didn't add any additional tomato and thought that worked fine. My avocado didn't ripen on time, so I only got to have the leftovers with avocado. Fabulous stuff! I like it because it's a great appetizer, but you don't just eat it mindlessly because of its kick.  -  14 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
