    1. You can use frozen corn, but you would have to cook it first – either in the microwave or boil it in a little water on the stove. And be sure to let it cool down before using.

  1. Great recipie ! I was wondering if you could tell me how many calories this is per serving as I’m trying to loose weight and excercising regularly. Thanks !

    1. Hi Sahar,

      Though we do not have an exact calorie count for this recipe, it is really a very healthy recipe. It does not have any oil or other fat and the beans provide a good amount of protein.

  2. How many people can eat out of this recipe? REPLY SOON please!
    And, where do i get the taco seasoning? I live in Chicago!-any convenient stores..Please

    also, can i add some shredded mozzarella cheese? Before serving ? or should i add it in the mixing bowl when we toos all the ingredients?


    1. Hi there,
      This is a dip and is served with chips and if served as an appetizer, it’ll serve about 8-10 people.
      Taco Seasoning is available at Walmarts and any of the bigger grocery stores.
      Mozzarella cheese really does not go with this dish….

  3. If I want to make it a day before the party, should I add Tomatoes & Salt while mixing all the other ingredients or add these two when ready to serve (say 1/2 hr before)?

    1. Hi Alpana,
      This dip needs to be made ahead of time so that the juices and the spices season the dip. You can make the whole dish and serve it right out of the refrigerator (just give it one more mix before serving)
      Enjoy 🙂

  4. Tried out this starter at the social of the student organization of my department………… was a big hit…..people present from different parts of the world liked it. I did add chat masala to make the dip lil Indianized:):)
    Thanks a lot

    1. Taco Seasoning is available at most of the grocery aisles in the international section.
      Incase you can’t find it, here are some alternatives:
      1. Basic ingredients for taco seasoning are: onion powder, garlic powder, cumin powder, paprika, and oregano. You can add crushed red pepper for the heat.
      2. Use Chaat Masala and some spices from your cabinet.
      3. Add cayenne powder, paprika, chilly powder, and some cumin.
