And, for more delicious recipes, please give these a try:
Corn: Brush or drizzle the corn cobs with avocado oil. On medium-high heat, grill the corn for 10 minutes, turning consistently.
Remove the corn kernels from the cob: Once the corn has cooled, you’ll need to remove it from the cob. Place a small bowl or cup upside down in a larger bowl. Slightly trim the end of each corn cob so there is a flat surface to work with. Place the flat side of the corn on top of the small bowl. Use a sharp knife to slice down the side of each corn cob.
Put it together: To a large bowl, add the corn, black beans, bell pepper, onion and lime juice; stir to combine.
Season: Add the black pepper, salt and cilantro to taste – checking the flavors as you go. Lastly, sparingly add the chipotle powder, again testing the flavors as you go.
If possible, use all organic ingredients.
