Black Bean Medley

This is a simple skillet dish that makes a great meal on it's own, or as a filling in tortilla shells! If you are anything like me, you love to make taco's, but need a way to stretch out that taco meat for your family...this is an option. Instead of making up taco meat, make up a mixture like this and everyone will love it! It's a little runnier than taco meat, but it's got great flavor and really packs a nutritional punch! This is a must try...I'm sure that you'll love it!

But if you don't, please don't send me hate mail :)


...1 can black beans (if you cook your own beans like I do, it's 1 1/3 cups of those)
...1 cup green pepper, chopped
...1 cup onion, chopped
...1 1/2 cups corn
...1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
...1/4 tsp. garlic powder
...1 T. olive oil
...2 T. cider vinegar
...1/4 tsp. salt
...1/4 tsp. pepper
...1 pkg. taco seasoning
In olive oil, saute peppers and onions until tender. Add corn, tomatoes and beans to the skillet and then add garlic powder, cider vinegar, salt, pepper and taco seasoning and stir until all ingredients are well coated. Bring mixture to a boil and continue boiling for about 5 minutes. Serve over rice or on a tortilla shell. Add shredded cheese if desired.
