Superbowl Snack

Bean Tacos (or Burritos or Nachos)
Don't forget about this tasty option for the Superbowl this weekend! It is so, so good and only takes about 15 minutes to make!!! I am going to serve it in a bowl along with corn chips and let people snack on it like a dip- it's healthy and filling and will be the newest addition to my Superbowl cravings!

Here's another great recipe, super easy, passed on to my from my sister. Honestly, this meal has such little prep and comes together so quickly it's a great last minute choice. You can prepare your own beans from scratch (by soaking them over night and boiling them the next morning) or you can used canned.

2 cups cooked pinto or black beans
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup salsa (I used Trader Joe's chunky jarred salsa)
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 cup frozen corn
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped
corn tortillas

Directions: Chop and dice your onion and green pepper, throw them in a pan with a little grape seed oil and saute them for about 3-4 minutes. Then add in your beans, salsa, cumin, and corn. Stir and cook for about 3 more minutes. Remove your pan from the heat, add your chopped cilantro, give it a final stir and scoop a portion into a warmed tortilla! Easy as can be and as tasty as all get out!

*** Make sure you use a salsa that you like, jarred works better than fresh, but use your favorite because it will make or break the recipe. Also, this makes great left overs "nacho style"- scoop it up with a crunchy tortilla chip for your lunch or a quick snack!
