This post is sponsored by Bush's Beans but as always, I promote products I love and use personally! 



Have I ever told you that I have a friend who calls me "Beans"? I met her in a college math class.  One day we met to study together in the college cafe and out of nowhere we heard a random lady very excitedly exclaiming "Beans! I have beans!!!!".  I mean, she was VERY excited about her bowl of beans and we haven't stopped giggling about it. The thing is- I love beans and I guess the nickname is quite fitting.  Haha.  


I love chili beans, pinto beans, refried beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, etc.  I haven't met a bean I didn't like.  They're versatile and are an inexpensive way to add a delicious protein.  Breakfast, lunch, or dinner! 

Needless to say, I always have cans of beans in my cabinet. There are four canned goods I ALWAYS have on hand- beans, corn, tomatoes, and coconut milk.  I can ALWAYS come up with something creative with any one of these items.  

I really could write an entire "Ode to Beans" post today but you'll hate me if I do.   Shall we move on to the Mini Taco Bites with Black Bean & Fire Roasted Corn Salsa



These are SOOO easy to make and they're sooooo delicious.

I make the black bean & fire roasted corn salsa ahead of time.  I use Bush's Best Black Beans.  They're my favorite brand of canned beans because they're consistently delicious.  My cupboard is full of a variety of Bush's beans.  (One day, I will share a photo.  You'll scream "BEANS!!!", too!).  So far, I have found that Wal-mart has the best price and selection of Bush's.  I stock up and I am HAPPY!
