"I don't for the life of me remember where I got this one, but I think the original had corn instead of black beans. Which you can easily use if you prefer, or add a can of corn as well as the black beans. Whatever makes you happy. Heat is controlled by what type of salsa you choose, or you can add some of your favourite hot pepper sauce to increase the heat if you wish."
