Grilled corn, jalapeños and lime juice are the foundation of this spicy black bean salad. It makes great leftovers and quesadilla filling, too.


  • 4 ears corn, shucked
  • 215 ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup packed cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons minced chives
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 


  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill on high heat. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until lightly charred, about 5-7 minutes. Let the corn cool before cutting the kernels from the cobs. Transfer them to a large bowl.
  2. Stir in the black beans, jalapenos, cilantro, chives, lime juice, salt and pepper.
