YUMMY! It sounds so simple (and it is!) but it's really good! The fresh lime juice really made it complete, so I don't suggest skipping it. I played with the measurements, as I didn't want so much salad, so I cut everything in about half, and only put 1c of brown rice, to make it a bit lighter. I"ll be making this for my next picnic!

As if the first 159 reviews weren't some indication, this is a really great recipe. While it's good as-is, it's also a great starting point for lots of yummy additions - including shredded chicken breast. YUM! This will definitely be part of my menus this summer for deck parties! BTW, it's 7 WW pts/serving and works with the "Simply Filling Technique."

This is GREAT! I mixed in cold cooked rice and we eat it like a cold grain salad. I also added Southwest Seasoning and a little bit of cooked, diced chicken. We love it!

I love this! It's right up my alley with the cilantro, fresh lime, red onion, black beans & corn. My hubby thought it was just "ok." But, I'm the only person in the house who doesn't hate onion, so I put onions only in mine, I'm not sure how it tasted without them! I served this warm, over white rice (what I had). I used a can of Rotel as others suggested in lieu of fresh tomatoes & jalepenos. Yum!

We loved this - but then I knew I would love it just by reading the recipe. I doubled it and served it to dinner guests along with Lime Chicken Soft Tacos Lime Chicken Soft Tacos. This would be good, as suggested, with chicken breast for another meal. It's gorgeous to look at, as well. I did use white rice, since a Vietnamese friend of mine gave me 50 lbs. of rice for Tet. I couldn't bring myself to buy more rice, but I'll bet it would be delicious with brown rice.

Delicious! I added some chopped chicken breasts sauteed in oil, lemon juice, chilies, garlic and cumin. The flavor of the dish was so wonderful that the rice kind of took away the delicious strong flavors. I would recommend using less rice than you usually would while eating it, so you get the full effect!

Wow that's good!! I used 1 can diced tomatoes with chilies for tomatoes. I also sauted the onions and a little garlic in the oil then added the beans, corn, tomatoes, salt, pepper, cilantro and lime juice. YUMMY I ate this as a main dish.

This is the most amazing dish! I've made it so many times, eating it day after day, and I'm still not tired of it! It's great as a stand alone meal, awesome with chips, and makes a fantastic topping for a chicken salad! I've altered just a few minor things- added an extra can of beans, substituted 2 cans rotelle for tomatoes, and added 1/2 tsp of curry. YUM! thank you, thank you, thank you!

Love this recipe! The only change I made was to use only half the tomatoes. DH and I ate this over the brown rice the first time, then used the leftovers and some grilled tilapia for fish tacos. Yum! The black bean mixture is very versatile too. It would make an excellent topping for grilled chicken, or a great side for all kinds of tex-mex dishes. It is also really easy to adjust this to suit your taste. With the tacos I added more lime juice and some habanero sauce.
