have i mentioned i love easy recipes? i think grains are just about the easiest meal starters ever. you can add pretty much anything you want to them, depending on what cuisine you're in the mood for. when i made this recipe i was fresh out of tortilla chips and basically just looking for an excuse to eat that guacamole. this was such a yummy summer lunch. the kids loved it and i think it might just become a sunny day staple around this house. next time charlie will be eating his out on the deck. i'm still finding grains of couscous in random dining room crevices.


2 cups prepared couscous
1 cup yellow corn
1 cup black beans
1/4 cup cilantro
2 Tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ancho chili powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

chop cilantro and garlic. toss all ingredients in a large bowl. top with a scoop of guacamole or your favorite salsa. it's so easy a caveman could do it. ;) enjoy!
