How to make Southern black bean succotash

Print this recipe
We all have our preferences when it comes to beans; luckily there's a plethora of choices. So, if lima beans aren't your favorite, this Southern black bean succotash might be for you. It's full of flavor and freshness reminiscent of the classic Southern comfort food, but with a black bean twist. Oh, and did I mention that it’s crazy simple to make? Think of this as salsa-tash —salsa plus succotash — it almost works!
Pro tip: If you have any left over — though I wouldn’t count on that — the dish keeps well in the fridge and can find new life in a wrap, on a burger or even as a dip for tortilla chips.
