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...

These were very good and as someone else mentioned, no complaints (just accolades!)from my "no meat is not a meal" husband! One thing is that when breading I ran out of breadcrumbs so I think you need more than 1/3 cup. I'd rather throw some out than run out. And I didn't find these either too moist or dry (and the corn didn't dry out) but I seeded my tomatoes.

This was delicious!!! I added in some onions as well and the overall flavor and consistency was fantastic. I baked them in the toaster oven and they came out just fine. The first few that I took off the baking tray lost their round croquette shape, but once they sat a few minutes they were able to maintain their shape.

Big hit! I added red onion, jalapenos and lime juice to the salsa, but eliminated the avocado(made guacamole instead). It is definitly a keeper.

The salsa was amazing, but the croquettes were bland. I didn't put in chili powder because I don't like spicy. What can I replace it with?
