Let’s talk easy dinners. Because right here is the epitome of quick, healthy, and tasty.
Black beans and corn are complementary proteins, meaning when combine they have all the amino acids your body needs to build protein. So this meal is a great vegetarian option (and vegan if you cut out the cheese).
But when it comes down to it, this is just plain delicious. De-Lish-ous. No joke.
My husband asked me to make it again. And again.
It would make a great party appetizer, side dish, or even main part of your meal. In fact, since it has veggies and protein all packed into this cute little cup — we eat it with cubed avocado, and drizzle of salsa, and pretty much nothing else. Because it’s that good.
Give it a whirl and let me know what your taste buds think!
