Chili-Cumin Bean Salad

Rated as 3.75 out of 5 Stars

"'A gal at work shared this interesting bean salad with me a few years ago,' notes Michelle Smith of Running Springs, California. 'It has lots texture and gets a little kick from the chili powder and cumin without being too hot. It's a nice favorite at our family gatherings. For a hearty change of pace, serve it in a tortilla with slices of grilled chicken breast.'"

The dressing was perfect! I had to substitute all black beans for the pinto, and it was still great.

This recipe really felt like it was missing something. I don't know, it was okay but I don't think I would make it again unless I wanted some sort of relish to go in a burrito.

love it! great hit at parties
