    Hey Nancy, that's like saying you don't like a movie without seeing it! It's a recipe, we can take it or leave it. And yet you rated it without even attempting to make it - Wow

    Nancy why give something a bad rating that you haven't tried? Just because you don't like the name...

    This was great and so easy. No mexicorn in my store so sautéed some frozen peppers and onions and omitted the scallions. Topped with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and served with corn bread. It was a hit at my house. Could easily add ground beef, turkey or sausage.

    This recipe surely didn't come from TEXAS!!! Maybe from someone living in Texas! I wouldn't even try cooking it!

    This is fantastic! I didn’t have the exact ingredients so I used what I had on hand. It tasted delicious. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a really good recipe! I did not use a slow cooker; cooked it all in one pot on the stove. I added onions and bell peppers and also some diced chicken breast. I also cut back to one can of black beans but this was an easy and delicious recipe! I will be making this again.

    Use this chart to determine cooking times for stove top cooking instead of Slow Cooker cooking.

    This sounds really good, but 6 hours on high using canned (cooked) ingredients? Shouldn't that be low for that long? Or 3 hours on high?
