      Loved it. Used a can of drained diced tomatoes, but otherwise following the directions exactly.

      So easy and good to make. I used canned tomatoes and rotel but am excited to make this with fresh tomatoes, I'm sure it will be even better! We also made burritos out of this; put the salad in with some cheese (warm it up in the microwave or eat it cold - great both ways!) and add some sour cream. Very good!

      I didn't have scallions, so I used some chopped red onion. I added a little extra cumin and a dash of chili powder. This is excellent over baby spinach or as a dip with tortilla chips. Use it as a salsa in a wrap etc. DELICIOUS! Just don't try to eat it right away or you will be very disappointed. This needs several hours in the fridge for the flavors to meld & build. Definitely use FRESh ripe tomatoes and hot peppers! Canned=blech!
