My husband and I make a variation of this filling OFTEN. It is so easy. 1 can black beans (drained), 1 can corn or 1-1.5 cups frozen corn, 1.5 tbsp lime juice, and 2 tsp of a "southwest seasoning" (just one of those pre-mixed types). Then you can chop up whatever fresh veggie you have on hand- we like to use bell peppers and fresh tomato. Keep it in a big tupperware and you can use it for nacho toppings, burritos, rice bowls, chip dip... Yum, I wish I had some right now!

Ooh, there's dinner! I have all the ingredients in the kitchen and some home made salsa to go with it. I've made something similar to this before but I will try this type soon. Hope the husband likes it.

I eat a variation of this 2-3 times a week. Sometimes in a burrito sometimes as tacos - but always a combination of veggies and either black or pinto beans.

yum! i might try this, but exchange the enchilada sauce for some of my own spices and sauce.

I'm a new vegetarian and this sounds great! My family can continue having taco nights, even without the meat.
