Cheap, convenient and oh-so-tasty, black beans are the cream of the bean crop. These black beauties have megawatt nutritional goodness including a whopping dose of very “filling” fiber and protein, a full spectrum of minerals, loads of B-vitamins, and antioxidant power that rivals red grapes and cranberries. Enjoy them canned, fresh, frozen, or dried.
Everyone, even small children, love this dish. It is definitely one of my personal favorites, especially in the summer.
2 cans black beans (GOYA best), rinsed
1 small can shoe peg corn, rinsed
1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
