This will hopefully be the first of a series of simple recipes that you can whip up after a hard day. See, it's well known in my family that I was the sped when it came to cooking. I didn't even try to learn until I was 20. These are some of my cheap and easy standbys for busy weekday nights.

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1 Can black beans
  • 1 Can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Can Corn
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Cumin, any other spices you like
  • Lime Juice
  • Shredded Cheese

Method[edit]

Dice your peppers, onion and garlic, sweat over medium heat

Add your corn, beans and tomatoes. Don't bother to drain first, just dump it all in.

Add cheese to thicken, I used a hunk of cheddar I had in the fridge but feel free to use whatever strikes your fancy. Add a few teaspoons of lime juice.

I prefer Tostidos Gold for this because it's a heavy dip, but I couldn't find them in my quick trip to the store.

THe beauty of this recipe is in it's adaptability. Like corn but not red peppers? Then can the peppers and add more corn!
