So simple, yet delicious. If you haven't planned ahead and soaked beans it works as well with tinned black, or kidney, beans.

I enjoyed it, but I didn't think it was anything special and I guess my guests didn't either, since I had a load left after my barbeque. And I'm glad too, since it turns out the leftovers make the best corn fritters I've ever eaten!

Really good, citrussy and tasty, whats not to like? Did n't think it would be very exciting considering the scant ingredients but I was wrong, less is more. I'm loving the black beans, had it as a low cal lunch with pitta bread. Will make again.

Delicious and fresh. I substituted the black beans for pinto beans from a can and added a chopped green pepper.
