5 Minute Black Bean Taco Bowls
These nutritious, colorful taco bowls are infinitely flexible and rely almost solely on pantry and freezer ingredients. They're a big hit with our whole family and have joined frittatas and simple pasta dishes in our heavy rotation on extra-busy weeknights. These ingredients would also make a great school- or take-to-work lunch layered in a thermos or jar. Just squeeze some lime on the avocado, if using, to prevent browning.
package frozen corn, cooked in the microwave according to package directions and drained
cans black beans, rinsed and drained*
jar sliced Spanish-style olives with pimentos, drained
Shredded Romaine lettuce
or 2 ripe avocados, sliced, if available
Jar of your favorite salsa
Sour cream, optional
Shredded sharp cheddar or other cheese, optional
Cholula or other hot sauce, optional
Lime wedges, optional
We like to put all the ingredients in separate bowls in the middle of the table, stick a spoon or fork in each, and let everyone assemble their own taco bowl. You could make the bowls before serving if it's easier to manage -- just arrange a bit of everything in its own little pile in each bowl.
* When I include canned black beans in salads, I like to use Goya because they're nice and firm compared to some other brands. (Just FYI. This isn't a sponsored post.)
