Zesty Corn and Black Beans

  • 2 can black beans
  • 1 small can of corn or 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup of loosely packed fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 Tbs EVOO
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 packet of Sazon Con Cilantro and Achiote
  1. heat EVOO in a medium sauce pan on medium high heat
  2. sautee onions, garlic, corn and Sazon in pan
  3. when onions are translucent mix in beans and cilantro and reduce heat to medium low
  4. cook for 7-10 minutes
  5. remove from heat and serve while still hot
I actually acquired this recipe from my old roommate a few years ago. This dish makes an excellent side dish to any Latin dish and a great filling for Mexican dishes. You could also make this a dip for chips and veggies by pureeing or mashing the beans prior to cooking. For all of you cilantro lovers you should try doubling the amount for a bolder taste. I hope you enjoy!
