Absolutely horrible! My husband and I took one bite each and threw it out. You could only taste spices, nothing else.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!
