 Ingredients List

  • 2 cn Black beans/kidney beans
  • 2 c Chopped onions
  • 1 1/2 c Chopped tomatoes
  • {canned tomatoes work, just
  • Drain them}
  • 1/4 c Salsa {I use hot}
  • 1 lg Green pepper
  • 1 c Frozen corn kernels
  • 1 ts Cumin
  • 2 ts Chili
  • 1 ts Or more mixed herbs {i
  • Cheated & used Mrs. Dash}
  • 1/2 ts Salt


3/4 c Flour
3/4 c Cornmeal
3/4 c Skim milk
2 ts Baking powder
1 ds Salt
2 ts Sugar
1 ds Chili pepper
1 Egg white
1/2 c Corn kernels

Saute onions & pepper in a little vegetable stock & water till tender
(about 8 mins). Add tomatoes, beans, salsa & corn. Add the spices and
simmer while you get the topping ready.

{Original recipe called for 3 or 4 tablespoons of oil and 1 whole egg in
the batter. I increased the milk slightly, added about 1/2 more teaspoon of
baking powder and used just the egg white}

Sift together dry ingredients. Beat egg white & milk. Stir into flour &
cornmeal mixture - don't overmix. Fold in the corn kernels, and spread
batter over bean mixture and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

I serve this with plain yogurt {reduced fat, can't get fatfree around my
neck of the woods} & extra salsa on the side.
