I loved the sound of this recipe however try not to use sugar and canned items where possible so I substituted an equivalent of 1 Tbsp of Stevia for the brown sugar one finely diced ripe tomato for the canned tomatoes and 2 finely sliced green onions for the onion flakes and fresh cooked corn sliced from the cob. A bit more work but once it was all mixed it was simply delicious!! Bravo on a nice easy and tasty recipe!! Read More

Did not like the tomato/green chili in this. If I do something like this again in the future I would leave that out and maybe add more onion vinegar and sugar or Splenda. Read More

I didn't find this recipe that different from many other Mexican bean salads that I've had. This one does have kidney beans instead of the traditional black beans and the brown sugar tames the spiciness a bit but it does still have a kick (and that's fine with me). The Rotel that I had on hand was diced tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro so that's what I used. This is a nice basic bean salad recipe and I liked it but I wasn't WOW'd by it not that that's a bad thing. Read More

I always change every recipe I make so I probably shouldn't rate but I was able to get my family to eat it so it must be good! My kids and husband will not eat tomatoes so I completely left out the diced tomatoes with green chili. Because of this I added some chili powder. I used balsamic instead of white vinegar and I doubled the vinegar and sugar. Soooo basically completely different but totally worth making- easy cheap and I got the fam to eat beans! That's a big win. Read More

Instead of onion flakes try chopping a red onion and adding to the corn and beans. Good! Read More

with only beans and corn in the cabinets to work with I thought to give this a try. It was simple. And pretty good. All I used was a little more vinegar and sugar. I substituted the brown sugar for white I didn't have have any handy. I made mines with white sugar vinegar garlic salt and black pepper and it came out just fine. Next time I will shop for the rest of the ingredients to give it a try as the recipe indicates. Read More
