1 cup = 180 calories 2 grams of fat

I found this recipe this morning while thumbing thru my husband's cookbook..  Yes, my husband has a cookbook.  It was a wedding gift.. "A Man, A Can, A Grill"...

This recipe caught my eye : Tex-Mex Longhorn.....
15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
11 oz can corn with peppers, drained
1/2 tsp. hot-pepper sauce
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2TBSP chopped fresh parsley or cilantro    * I used clilantro*
juice of 1/2 lime
salt and pepper to taste       
Mix ingredients and enjoy!                                                                             

Lunch today at my house!  Fish tacos, corn/black bean tex mex salad, cole slaw! YUM

This recipe also includes making a top round broil on the grill.. * I am not up for grilling on this rainy, freezing day*  I will just leave that part off today!  The fish tacos were yummy with the slaw & black beans and corn!


  1. What kind of fish? And how did you cook it?

  2. Today Orange Roughy... Oven 400 degrees for about 10-12 mins. I only use a non-stick spray, on both sides a little salt and pepper...
    Today I used fajita seasoning, lime & cilantro.

  3. We make something very similar. We add onions, bell peppers, and we use it as a corn and bean salsa. Goes great with chips!
