Instructions

  5. Add corn, black beans and diced tomatoes.
  6. Add onion and garlic.
  7. Stir everything together.
  8. Place in the prepared dish.
  9. At this point you can cover the dish and chill overnight or freeze (make sure the dish is not warm before placing in the fridge or freezer). Let the dish stand in room temperature while the oven is preheating, then bake (add 10 more minutes to the total time).
