Black beans are a man’s best friend.

Chicken with black bean salsa

Inspired by this recipe

I’ve recently discovered my love of black beans. The southwestern egg rolls (found here) are one of my favorite things ever. The chili that I made last week was also pretty great. Black beans really are amazing. This recipe is no exception to that rule. This is a really unique meal that is really simple and fast to make. It also looks really impressive for being such a simple recipe. All of the colors make this a dish that you use to show off with.



  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 2 teaspoon chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 8 grape or cherry tomatoes, quartered


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • Lime slice

Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Spray chicken with cooking spray to coat, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook chicken over medium high heat in a pan with butter. Serve chicken over salsa with a slice of lime.
