Tasty Tuesdays: 5th edition?

I am fairly certain this is my 5th post for Tasty Tuesdays, but instead of just scrolling through my blog to "fact check," I am feeling rather lazy and decided to simply follow the blog title with a question mark to keep things simple.

Do you ever have those days when convenience trumps taste and quality? I will admit that there are those times (more often than not) when I just want to open a few cans, do a quick stir and call it a day. Today's recipe reflects that very sentiment. It's a no-brainer recipe that's perfect for cookouts or outdoor dining because it does not need to be kept chilled.

3-can Black Bean and Corn Salad/Dip


1 can black beans, drained
1 can golden sweet kernel corn, drained
1 can Rotel*, drained
1/2 small onion, chopped (optional)
a few spoonfuls of salsa (optional)

Combine the contents of the 3 cans in a medium-sized bowl. Add onion and salsa if desired. Stir and enjoy.

You can serve this as a dip with tortilla chips. I personally like to eat it on its own as a side dish or salad. It's also a nice topping for tacos, fajitas or grilled chicken.

Have a Tasty Tuesday!
