Tips & Tricks for perfecting Easy Tex Mex Corn and Beans

You can substitute black beans for pinto beans.  I suggest however that you rinse and drain black beans out of the can.  If you don’t rinse black beans they will make your corn look grey.

Mozzarella cheese works well instead of cheddar.  You can also eliminate the cheese if you like.

If you want you can also substitute frozen corn for canned corn in this recipe.

Make sure you cook this recipe enough to eliminate the extra juice created by the Rotel in the cooking process.
