For this recipe, you'll be using salsa verde (yep, the green kind) three ways: as a saute liquid for corn, a cooking liquid for whole-wheat couscous and a flavorful sauce for black beans. Who knew that salsa could be so versatile?



  • 15 oz Canned Black Beans
  • 1 cup Mild Salsa Verde
  • 1 cup Corn, sweet, yellow, frozen, kernels cut off cob, unprepared
  • 2/3 cup Whole Wheat Couscous


1 Add beans and 1/4 cup of the salsa verde (green salsa) to a small saucepan over medium-low heat, cover, and cook until fully heated through, about 10 minutes.
2 While beans are cooking, heat 1/4 cup of the salsa in a large cast iron or other stick-resistant skillet over medium-high.
3 Add corn and sauté until lightly browned, about 7 minutes.
4 Meanwhile, bring remaining 1/2 cup salsa and 2/3 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high.
5 Stir in couscous, cover, and set aside for at least 5 minutes.
6 Arrange the couscous, black beans, and corn in bowls. If desired, garnish with fresh cilantro.
