Mexican Bean Medley

Mexican Bean Medley

Here is one of our favorite recipes when our whole family gets together. We eat it with nachos, but it can be eaten with just a spoon! It is easy, cheap and makes a LOT, so it’s great if you have a crowd, or I make it and eat it for 3 days straight, for my lunch and snacks! It can be quick unless you have to soak your beans before hand, and then you might want to start it a few days earlier then needed.

  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of black eyed peas
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 can diced jalapeno peppers (4oz)

Dressing mix

Mexican Bean Medley serve with nachos


Rinse and drain the cans of beans, drain the corn and add all the beans and veggies into a big bowl.

Combine the dressing mix into a saucepan and heat until the sugar has dissolved. Let it cool and pour over the veggie mixture. Cover and let it marinate over night. The next day drain the mixture. I usually put a colander into the sink and pour the mixture into it, letting all the dressing go down the drain. I let it sit for 5-10 minutes before returning the mixture to the bowl.

This should be good for up to 5 days in the fridge, but I doubt it will last that long!

Serve with Nachos, the scoops work best with this dip! Enjoy!
