I tossed this easy, healthy and tasty dinner together last night and my family was so happy. I think in the future I will use 2 cans of beans instead of one, maybe one black and one kidney. I should also mention that it has a lot of eye appeal, pretty food gets tried and eaten, with all the colors and textures it appears very festive.
This is what I tossed in this time:
2 cups cooked rice, hot
1 can black beans, heated
1 cup corn
3/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup sweet onion, diced
1/4 cup minced cilantro
2-3 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1-2 teaspoons chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
This is how I did it:
As soon as the rice is cooked and the beans heated through, set a large bowl to the side where you can keep adding the ingredients as you go. I used my favorite pasta bowl. Pretty.
We ate this as our main dish sprinkled with cheese and served with corn bread but it would make a terrific side to grilled chicken.
