Roasted Chipotle Black Bean & Corn Salad

This recipe comes from a good friend of mine who has her own food blog called Clean Freak. She began her journey of eating clean more than a year ago.

This bean and corn salad was super simple and super healthy yet did not lack in the flavor department at all! It was the perfect side dish to go with our taco night!

1 can {organic} no salt added black beans, rinsed
1 1/2 c. frozen roasted corn (I get mine at Trader Joe's)
2 shallots, chopped (you could use a small sweet onion)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 t. cumin powder
1/4 t. Chipolte chili powder
1/2 t. sea salt
1 T. olive oil

Heat oil in pan to medium heat. Add garlic, onions, and red pepper. Saute until tender. Add cumin, chipolte, salt, corn, and black beans and stir until well blended. Continue to heat until frozen corn is thawed completely. Serve.

NOTE: If you can't find roasted corn at your grocery store you can just use sweet corn instead. If you still want a fire roasted flavor you could opt for jarred fire roasted red peppers (instead of fresh) and omit the olive oil since the peppers will have enough oil on them.
