Mexican inspired Coucous

So, tonight is Monday, which means I always try to do a meatless meal.. We have regained a love of couscous, so I am trying to incorporate it into a couple of meals a week.. We really love our black beans in this house, even so much that my 2 year old ate the cold.. We I think of beans it always leads me to a Mexican or Tex -Mex theme.. So after browsing the net I came up with this recipe.. I hope that you will try it sometime as your Meatless Monday meal..


1c uncooked couscous, cook using the directions on box
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black bean, drained and rinsed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

In a large frying pan, saute the vegetables, garlic and spices.. Saute until just tender.. Add the tomatoes and beans.. Simmer until vegetables are tender.. Mix in the couscous, until it all comes together.. Serve right away with your choice of toppings (cheese, sour cream and green onions)

Enjoy and try to make every Monday Meatless 🙂
