    1. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients and toss to coat thoroughly.


    Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried.

    Used different ingredients. Great with barbecued beef. You can also use tinned kidney or pinto beans. I like to add sliced spring onion and a pinch of chilli powder just before serving. - 15 Sep 2008


    I found this recipe to be quick easy and delicious. I also found that frozen sweetcorn can be used and is equally good. - 15 Sep 2008
