Moderately spicy and very flavorful. Contrast the sweetness and pop of corn kernels with the black beans, and the fragrant chill of fresh cilantro with the flowing warmth of bell and green chili peppers. Very easy and fast to make. If you want to use a crockpot, please do brown the meat (gives wonderful flavor) before putting into a crockpot on low for four hours. You can substitute chicken for the beef if you wish.
