Black Beans and Corn Bake

by elyn_ryn

This recipe is so versatile that it can be used as a dip, a side dish, or a main dish. Not only that, but it also goes from stovetop to oven in the same pan. It is hearty and delicious and simple to make. What could be easier?

A lime tomato salsa goes great with it. The tanginess of the lime is a nice contrast to the beans and corn. This salsa keeps well in the refrigerator. I think it just gets better the longer you marinate it.

People love tortilla chips with this dish whether or not you serve it as a dip. They add a fun factor to the meal!

Try lime-flavored tortilla chips with this dish. Their lime flavor compliments the lime in the salsa.

This recipe makes about 12 servings and leftovers heat up well in the microwave. A mini-skillet makes a fun serving presentation!

The recipe calls for pepper jack cheese on top, but I have used Mexican blend cheeses and cheddar and it was just as delicious! I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Instructions
Beans and Corn
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. On the stovetop, heat olive oil on medium heat in a large (12-inch) oven-safe skillet. Add onion and garlic and cook until wilted and turning brown, about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add drained beans, 3/4 cup of saved bean liquid, and vinegar. Stir and coarsely mash with a fork or potato masher. Cook for a couple of minutes and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the corn in a circle a little smaller than the beans so that some of the beans are showing around the pan. Add the cheese on top of the corn.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes until hot in center and cheese is melted. Serve with tortilla chips and salsa.
Tomato Lime Salsa
  1. In a small bowl, stir together the tomato, bell pepper, onion, lime juice, lime zest, and cilantro.
