  • A good knife
  • Non-stick Skillet
  • Mixing or serving bowl


  • 2-3 Ears Sweet corn You could use frozen corn if fresh isn't in season!
  • 1 pint Cherry or Grape tomatoes
  • 1 bunch Green onions
  • 1 large Red Onion
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Using a sharp knife or kernel cutter, remove the corn from your cob (skip this step if using frozen corn).
  • Warm a drizzle of olive oil in a non-stick skillet and add your corn. Char on medium-high heat, stirring often. It will start to pop and brown as it gets closer to done.
  • While your corn is roasting, drain and rinse your can of black beans.
  • Finely dice your red onion, and add to your mixing or serving bowl.
  • When your corn is done, remove from heat and let it cool.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice your green onions, and add them to the bowl.
  • Add your black beans to the bowl.
  • Dice your tomatoes and add them to the bowl.
  • Using your kitchen shears, cut up as much cilantro as you like (we like a LOT) and add that to the bowl.
  • Once the corn is cooled some, add that to the bowl, too!
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cut your lime in half and add the juice from the full lime to your bowl.
  • Toss and serve with chips!
