If you don't have the Bird's Eye Recipe Ready Southwestern Blend, you can just use a combination of frozen corn, black beans, diced red and poblano peppers, and onion.

This will be great this summer for cookouts as it has no mayo in it.

Feel free to play with the veggies - I think some black olives, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes will be nice ... can't wait for my garden this summer!
