Ingredients

Black bean filling

  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Roasted corn

  • 1 (15 oz) can corn drained and dried (the corn needs to be very dry, so it will roast correctly)
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and minced
  • salt to taste

Optional toppings

  • corn tortillas
  • cilantro roughly chopped (highly recommended)
  • lime juice
  • avocado
  • shredded cheese
  • sour cream/non fat plain greek yogurt or vegan alternative
  • shredded lettuce

Instructions

Black bean filling

  • Place black beans, salsa, garlic, and ground cumin into a small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until hot. The beans will break up a bit as you stir. Taste and season with salt, if necessary. Keep warm on low while you cook the roasted corn.

Roasted corn

  • Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Once hot, add very dry corn and and diced jalapeno (no oil or cooking spray). Let it sit for 3-5 minutes, so the corn/jalapeno has a chance to roast.
  • Stir a few times and then let sit again for an additional 3-5 minutes. Stir again. If it's not roasty enough, cook for another 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Assembly

  • Warm a corn tortilla according to the package. Place black bean filling into the tortilla and top with roasted corn/jalapeño, and additional toppings! Serve and enjoy!
