What You'll Need

  • 2 cups cooled cooked rice
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 ears fresh corn on the cob (about 1-1/2 cups kernels) (see Note)
  • 1 diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine rice, beans, corn kernels, and onion.
  2. In another small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour over rice mixture; mix well.
  3. Cover and chill 2 to 3 hours to allow flavors to blend. Stir before serving.


To remove corn from the cob, cut wide end so it stands up, then using a sharp knife or corn stripper, cut off the kernels.
