“Quick and easy. I usually have these ingredients on hand so on busy days, this is one of the fast dinners that I throw together. It's adaptable and still comes out well. If I don't have the mexicorn, I use frozen corn. I use any type of canned beans that I have in the pantry. You can chop a few jalapenos to make it hotter if that's what you like. We top each serving with chopped tomatoes, onions and sour cream.”
