Wonderful! I left out the cumin and bell pepper because I didn't have any on hand. I also substituted the clove garlic for about a tbs. and a half of jarred minced garlic and added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. I served this over white rice. Read More

A really nice side dish that has a wonderfully deceptive amount of flavor thanks to the garlic. We've found cooking until almost all the liquid is gone works best though - one time 20 minutes was too much. Read More

This was very good and very easy. I didn't have cumin (dislike the taste so probably would not have added anyway) I added a touch of onion powder. Had a great kick to it. Nice side dish and a good way to get some veggies in. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I was looking for a recipe to make a meal out of a can of kidney beans and found this one. WOW what an easy and tasty recipem this turned out to be. I followed the recipe and the only change I made was to rinse both the corn and the beans(together in the same strainer) because I do not like the can taste. I did not even replaced any of the lost liquid. My husband and kids loved this recipe. It is a really great vegan recipe! Read More

My grandma used to make a dish like this. She used creamed corn and kidney beans. We called it "kali ca mash" She sered it with bacon and we had a meal. Those were the days. Read More

Made this with reservations that my husband would even eat it. He actually complimented me on it 3 times which means he really really really likes it! I served it over Brown Rice and was so tasty and filling. Will serve again! Read More

I found this alright. I don't like to use anything canned so I used the equivalent in beans previously cooked from dried and frozen corn adding in some chicken broth to make up for the liquid. The cooking time made the corn and beans way too soft and when mixed many of the beans broke apart making a sort of pasty consistency. The flavor was good and if I make this again I will cook it for only enough time as to warm through. Read More
