Want an easy and healthy weekday dinner? Well, here it is! You can make this Black-Bean Dip in advance and use it any day of the week. You can toss the black bean mixture over romaine lettuce, add some cheese and you have a taco salad. You can also make these super delicious and easy open quesadillas. —

What You'll Need
  • Black Bean mixture
  • 1 can black beans

  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves – chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
