Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 cup frozen corn kernels
    1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
    Juice of 2 limes (about 1/3 cup)
    2 Tbs olive oil + oil for drizzling
    small handfull of fresh cilantro, minced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 tsp cumin
    dash adobo seasoning
    dash crushed red pepper
    salt & pepper

Directions

Spread the corn kernels on a baking sheet and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Place in a 400 degree oven and roast until they just start to brown around the edges (Note: a toaster oven works great for this without heating up your kitchen).

When the corn is roasted, put in a small sautee pan with the black beans. Heat over medium just until all are heated through.

Meanwhile, combine all of the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and mix well to combine. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

Pour the dressing over the warm corn and beans, stirring to coat.

Makes 3 servings, approx 2/3 cup each.
