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.

I added a bit of my favourite salsa to this recipe (which also has corn in it), and I thought it was really tasty. It was also a good way to use up the mixed beans I had in the fridge (so in addition to the kidney beans I had chick peas and black beans). I'll make this again.

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.

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!!
