Prize Winning Bean Salad

This was something I made to take to a potluck at work. I started out making it as a whole bean dip/salsa, but when I finished, it seemed it would make a wonderful salad, stuffed in fresh tomatoes from the garden or served on a bed of romaine. I used the tiny bit of leftovers spooned on broiled fish, so the possibilities really seem endless. I threw things together from things in my cupboard (the cans of Rotel were leftover from someone coming over eons ago, but you could easily chop up a couple of ripe tomatoes and chilis), but sifted the brain cells to remember everything I did after I won first place in our potluck competition as a side salad and everyone wanted the recipe. You can easily spice this up more to your taste by adding jalapenos or your favourite chile, next time I make this I might try adding a couple of tomatillos.
