My pantry and freezer are getting rather bare. It will be time for a trip to the grocery soon. Yesterday I needed something quick for lunch. My hubby was home; so, it had to be something good. The kiddos are happy with PBJ. I didn't find much to inspire me in the refrigerator. So, I turned to my cupboards.
I found a can of black beans, a can of mexican style corn, and a can of off-brand Rotel tomatoes with chiles.
I put it all in a two quart saucepan and added a little taco seasoning. It was pretty with the red, yellow, and black.
Goodness, it was delicious! It's definitely a keeper for a quick dinner. I served it with grilled cheese sandwiches made with homemade whole wheat bread.
Now, I prefer not to use canned goods often; because, I believe fresh and frozen to be more nutritious. This was a great emergency dinner; I think I'll keep these ingredients on hand just in case!
