Random Recipe

Yummy (if I may say so myself) homemade recipe I made this weekend.

Black Bean & Corn Potacos

About 14 oz (give or take) of canned black beans, drained

About 8-14 oz (give or take) of corn

1 clove garlic, diced

2 large baking potatoes

1/2 tspn. cumin

Random amount of cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you want it)

Some chilis (quantity also dependent on how spicy you want it)

A bit of chopped cilantro for garnish

Whatever taco mixings you like:

In our case...



Diced Tomatoes

Hot salsa

Sour cream with lime mixed in

Directions: Poke holes in the baking potatoes and bake them until they are cooked through (about 1 hour at 400 degrees or so). When potatoes are almost done, throw the black beans and corn in a pan. Throw in the garlic, chilis, cumin, and cayenne. Cook until heated through and spices are giving off a nice odor. Remove potatoes from oven. Slice potatoes in two and scoop out the inside, keeping the skins intact. Set insides aside (you can either pitch them or, in my case, throw some butter and seasonings on them and eat them on the side). Fill the potato skins up with the bean/corn mixture. Throw back in the oven for about 10 minutes or so. Remove, top with all your favorite taco toppings, and gorge, Mexican-style!
