- Heat the oil in a large skillet and add the onion. Saute for approximately 5 minutes (or until the onion is translucent).
- Add the black beans, chilis, tomatoes, cilantro and corn. Simmer 15 minutes over medium heat. If the mixture becomes too dry, you can add a touch of water or fresh lime juice (my personal favourite as it makes the flavour of the chilis and cilantro just pop!) Taste and add salt if required.
- Serve with lime wedges and ENJOY!
