1 In a large skillet or medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the onion and corn. Cover and saute for a couple of minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, and cumin. Saute for a few more minutes, or until the onions become translucent. Stir occasionally.
2 Add the beans and tomato sauce, stir well and replace the lid. Cook for a few more minutes until the sauce is simmering and the beans are hot.
3 Turn off the heat and stir in the cilantro, fresh tomato, and lime juice.
4 Plate the chilled chopped romaine on individual plates. Pile a couple of scoops (around 1 to 2 cups) of the enchilada mix over the greens. Garnish with extra cilantro.
5 CHEF’S NOTE: For better and more authentic flavor, grill or roast the corn on the cob, and then slice off the corn kernels.
6 I love the hot-cold contrast of the warm beans and veggies over the cold romaine. However, this salad is delicious when the enchilada mix is served chilled as well.
