It's National Bean Day

Beans, Beans
The Magical Fruit
The More You Eat
The More You Toot

Lima, kidney, and garbanzo are just a few of the several thousand varieties of beans.  Today is THE day to recognize and celebrate the bean.
(Black Bean and Corn Salsa Chicken)

Here's one of my favorite recipes using black beans:

Black Bean and Corn Salsa Chicken


2 jars chunky salsa
2 cans corn or one package frozen corn
2 cans black beans
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts


Place all ingredients in crock pot and set on low for eight hours. Pretty simple!

This meal can be eaten alone with no additions or placed on a warm tortilla shell topped with shredded cheese and eaten like a burrito.

What kind of beans do you like best?  Have a favorite dish that includes beans?
