READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe is delicious. i made it two days ago, followed the directions to a t, and didn't have a problem with moistness or shape retention. It could have had a bit more flavor, but over all it was amazing. I'm actually making it again...

Another great recipe. Although we found the corn to dry out a bit. Flavor was wonderful.

What a delightful cacophony of flavor. I did the Mexican Coleslaw with it and served with warmed corn tortillas. Squeezing the wedges of lime on the croquettes added another layer to the complexity of the flavor symphony.

Amazing! One of their best recipes yet! I will definitely add this to my weekly menu. The croquettes are fantastic by themselves, the salsa just makes them that much more delicious!

I made this 2 nights ago for my dinner group and using my food processor really cut down on prep time! I first used the processor to chop the tomatoes, then without rinsing the bowl, used it for mashing the black beans. I made the recipe as directed otherwise and it was delicious! I expect that it could be frozen for future meals, but I am unsure how to do that. Suggestions?

So I'm a bit biased in that I've had success with most Eatingwell recipes, however this one was a standout! I used fresh tomatoes and didn't run into the problem of them being too mushy. The fresh salsa is the best way to have them as they really add to the dish. Great recipe- and different too!
