Black Beans and Corn

It has been one hundred and five here. It is time to figure out what to eat that doesn't involve turning on an oven.

This is one of our go to menus. We make it, we eat it. How we eat it depends on the day. My kids love it as a dip with tortilla chips. We frequently have it as a side, anything grilled seems to go with it. There is no real recipe and variations are frequent. Mix one drained can of black beans, one drained can of shoepeg corn, one chopped avocado and then add some seasoning. I'd suggest cilantro, finely diced red onion, lime juice and salt at the very least.


  1. ;) before my vegetarian (now vegan) son left home, we enjoyed something like this winter AND summer. But it is beautiful in the summer!!!
    ??? garlic, I always add garlic!!

  2. And sometimes jalepenos. This morning, I roasted garlic to try in my final ciabatta. Roasted garlic and rosemary.
