Black Beans & Rice with a Twist

In honor of "Meatless Mondays" I'm going to share a really easy recipe with you. Joe and I end up eating rice and beans about once a week purely due to convenience. It's quick, easy, cheap and fairly healthy too. By the way, I'm not a good cook (Joe wears that hat at our house), so if I can make this, then anyone can.

The usual -
1 can of black beans - we use Trader Joe's Cuban Style black beans
Cooked brown rice
Salsa Fresco - we get the giant tub at Costco, but you could make it by hand or whatever

The twist -
2 ears of corn on the cob - grilled and cut off the cob
Chili Lime sauce: to make whisk together
 - 3 T mayo
 - juice of 1/2 of small lime
 - 1/8 tsp salt
 - 1/4 tsp chili powder
 - dash black pepper

Mix it all together and eat up! Sorry, no pictures, it was gone too quick!


  1. Sounds yummy! I will have to try that!

  2. It does sound yummy. Beans and Rice especially with corn is one of my favorites. Will love to try your chili lime sauce.
