Southwestern Recipes: Easy Black Beans and Corn

Easy Southwestern recipe!

Hubby and I first had this Southwestern dish when we were vacationing at the beach several years ago. We both really liked it, so I came home and began experimenting. I knew there was more to this Southwestern recipe than just the obvious black beans and corn.

Below is the recipe I finally decided was best. For better taste, use frozen corn. For quicker results, use canned corn.

Holle’s Spicy Black Beans and Corn recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 1 can of corn (or frozen corn, cooked)
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • Garlic salt, to taste
  • Chipotle powder, to taste (I use a lot!)

Directions: Mix beans and corn together and set aside.

Place butter, onions, and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl and cook until onions are soft. Add to beans and corn.

Stir in chilies and seasonings. Heat in microwave until hot.
