Our Go-To Lunch

When we want something quick, and nutritious, that's more than a sandwich, here's what we do:

One can corn
One can diced tomatoes
One can black beans
Drain the corn and beans, dump them in a bowl and dump in the tomatoes with the liquid. Snip in some fresh cilantro, or add a teaspoon or so of dried cilantro, then sprinkle some fajita seasoning over it. Stir and microwave for three minutes, or warm-up in a sauce pan on your stovetop. 
Serve as is, as a dip for tortilla chips, or add things like shredded cheese salsa and sour cream on top of  lettuce for a fuller meal. 
This is yummy, and filling, and easy to make even for my young children. Then they feel so proud and helpful, as they provided lunch for the family!

  1. This is very similar to the Black Bean Corn Salsa my mom makes and I recently wrapped it in a tortilla with rice and avocado. So good! Yum!
