    Delicious! I used white kidney beans instead and it was just as good! Sure to be a crowd pleaser.  -  15 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wasn't crazy about it the 1st day but the 2nd day I got hooked and ate the entire thing in 2 sittings!  -  14 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I have been using for years, and this is only the third recipe I have rated 5 stars. This is unbelievably good considering the simple ingredients. The fresh lime juice and basil are key. I used fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, and basil from my garden. What a wonderful way to use up summer garden bounty. I made it once with fresh chives from my garden instead of onion, and it was wonderful.  -  14 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
