Corn and Black Bean Salad Recipe

Last night I was feeling a little lazy but still wanted something warm for dinner, so I threw together this recipe with ingredients from my kitchen.

2/3 cup corn (fresh, frozen, or canned)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/8 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
Juice of 2 limes
1 tsp chili powder (more if desired)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
A touch of your favorite hot sauce (optional)

Spray a non-stick saute pan with cooking spray and allow it to heat up. Add corn to the pan and lightly brown the corn on both sides. Add the onion and bell pepper and sauté them slightly. Add the beans, lime juice, salt, pepper, and chili powder to the pan and heat through.

Douse with a healthy dose of hot sauce.

It can be served hot or cold as a salsa or as a side salad.
