Black Bean & Corn Side

Looking for a super easy, super healthy side for your Mexican dishes? (Such as Mexican Lime Chicken- click here!)  Here's a simple recipe that you can throw together.  Since the three main ingredients are canned foods, you can keep them in your cupboard so you don't have to run to the store last minute.  The black beans are chocked full of fiber, protein, and are practically fat-free.  Corn is a low-fat complex carbohydrate, high in fiber, folic acid, and vitamin C.  Lastly, tomatoes have lycopene, a vital antioxidant, vitamin C, vitamin A, and potassium.  Enjoy!
