Here’s what you’ll need:

1 lb can of black beans

½ bag of fire roasted corn

1 can diced fire roasted green chilies

Red or Green bell peppers, diced

3 or 4 green onions, diced

¼ cup Balsamic vinegar

½ cup Good season’s Italian dressing

(Mix per instructions then draw a half cup from the mix)

½ cup Pace Picante Sauce Medium heat

Couple of dashes Wright’s Liquid Smoke (Mesquite flavor)

Dice the bell pepper and onions.

Add the green chilies, frozen corn, peppers and onions directly to a bowl that the salad can be mixed and served from.

Rinse and drain the black beans.

Mix the Picante salad dressing, vinegar and liquid smoke into a measuring cup and stir well. Once the beans have drained stir them into the vegetables.

Add the dressing and let it marinate about an hour in the refrigerator.

This can be served as a side dish or try it as an easy Friday night meal with Trader Joe’s Blue Corn Tortilla Chips. The boy’s and I really love it.
