Black Bean and Corn Chowder

Another very quick, easy, and yummy recipe!

3 cups cooked black beans, undrained (see how to make the beans here)
3 cups corn kernels (either hacked off the cob or frozen**)
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 onion, chopped
Salt to taste

Cover very lightly with water. Bring to a boil, simmer about 15 minutes. (For this recipe in particular, don't obsess about the amounts. As long as you have about the same amount of corn as beans and don't overdo it with the water you can't really go wrong.)

Due to the flavor of the ingredients, very little additional seasoning is necessary for this to taste great! Also delicious with tortilla chips, but it is a complete protein on its own with the corn/bean combo and is light yet filling.

**Frozen vegetables are actually fine to eat as long as there are no additives. They're a good way to get enough veggies in your diet in the colder months when many things aren't in season. Additionally, if you have a good farmer's market, you can stock up during the last few weeks of fall and freeze stuff yourself for the winter!
