Corny Beans

Corny name, huh?

I like having a quick side-dish idea. This one works with many entree choices: tex-mex, chicken, pork chops and even as a chip-dip. A better choice to pair with your lunch sandwich.

I serve room temperature or cold after it has been refrigerated.

Equal portions of corn and black beans [rinse]
Diced onion to taste
Lime or lemon juice to taste
Cilantro [fresh] to taste
Chopped tomato

On this day I combined corn, black beans, onion and lime juice and served with roasted pork loin.

For a tex-mex side or chip-dip I add a handful of chopped cilantro, chopped tomato and a tablespoon of cumin or taco seasoning and use red onion. Cilantro is one of those things you either hate or love. I love it.

This is really awesome with fresh corn!

Simple I know. With making menus and supper choices I will take all the help I can get.
