Recipe: Black Bean Lettuce Bundles

When fresh corn is at its peak, cut the kernels from one ear of cooked corn for this recipe. Otherwise, canned or thawed frozen corn will do. Ingredients 1 cup(s) canned black beans 1/2 cup(s) cooked corn kernels 1/2 medium sweet red pepper(s), seeded and chopped 4 medium scallion(s), sliced 1/4 cup(s) cilantro, chopped 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice 1 tsp olive oil 1 tsp ground cumin 1 medium garlic clove(s), chopped 1/2 tsp table salt 1 head(s) Boston lettuce, washed and seperated into leaves Instructions In a medium bowl, mix the black beans, corn, bell pepper, scallions, cilantro, lime juice, oil, cumin, garlic and salt. Refrigerate, covered, until the flavors are blended, at least 1 hour. Place a lettuce leaf on a work surface and fill with about 1/3 cup of the bean mixture; fold up burrito-style. Repeat, using all the bean mixture (save any extra lettuce for a salad).
