Updated March 23, 2017

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco
  • 1 tablespoon Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • Lime wedges for serving (optional)

Steps

  • 1
    Stir together all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Lay out a piece of foil and fold edges up to make a bowl. Pour ingredients onto foil.
  • 2
    Use a second piece of foil to cover the packet. Be sure to pinch the edges closed so it seals well.
  • 3
    Grill the foil packet over medium direct heat for 8-10 minutes per side.
  • 4
    Open foil packet carefully as steam will escape. Serve while warm!

Expert Tips

  • Use heavy-duty aluminum foil to reduce chance of tearing in foil. You can also double up the foil layers to make a sturdier packet.
