Put this recipe together and enjoy the spicy flavors of hearty black beans mixed with corn, roasted red peppers, lettuce and Sargento® Sliced Pepper Jack Cheese squares tossed in a homemade dressing of chopped fresh cilantro, oil — and a splash of lime juice for authentic Southwestern flavor.

  • 1 can (15 or 16 oz.) no salt added black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed (or fresh corn cut from cobs in season)
  • 1/2 cup diced well-drained bottled roasted red peppers
  • 4 slices Sargento® Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 4 large Boston lettuce leaves
  1. Combine beans, corn and red peppers in a medium bowl. Stack and cut cheese into 1/2-inch squares. Separate squares and add to bean mixture; toss well.
  2. Stir in cilantro, oil and lime juice; toss well. Chill at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours before serving.
  3. Serve over lettuce leaves.
