bbq succotash

i have discovered a little dish that is oh so perfect for summer (or really anytime of year for that matter). i'm pretty sure my friend purdy made this for dinner one night and then we rediscovered it when she was down visiting earlier this year. it's perfect for shan since it is a vegetarian dish but i promise you will love it just as well. it really is the perfect succotash and super easy/quick to make (and healthy to boot!)


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin or vegetable oil, 1 turn of the pan
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped (i use a whole onion because i love it)
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 (14-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (10-ounce) box frozen corn
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup smoky barbecue sauce (i use sticky fingers memphis original)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives, parsley or cilantro leaves, for garnish (sometimes i do, sometimes i don't)
Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and peppers and saute 5 minutes.

 Add beans and corn and season with salt and pepper.

When corn heats through, add barbecue sauce. Stir to combine and serve succotash with chopped chives, parsley or cilantro to garnish.

 Finished product (absolutley horrible iphone picture. i need some food staging classes stat).

this dish made me fall in love with red peppers. i was kinda "meh" about them before but now i *lurve*. do share some new recipes you have discovered. or some staples that you always make.

ps: i can't wait to have new dishes/cookware.
pps: i need a camera stat.
