Chicken, Black Bean, Corn and other pantry stuff salad

Funny, this came from a newspaper article a while ago of how to use up your hurricane supply stock. Ironically enough, it's stuff I normally have in the pantry anyways and Hubby loves it.

It also makes an awesome Quesadilla filling!

1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can corn, no salt if possible, drained
4scallions, thinly sliced, about ½ cup (or for those who think like me, green onions)
1 red/yellow or orange pepper, diced
1 can of chicken, drained (or ¾ lb / 3 cups cooked chicken), cut into bite size pieces
Juice of 2 limes (3 tbs)
¼ cup olive oil
1 tbs ground cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
Diced tomatoes (optional, but highly recommended)
Diced jalapeno for those who like a little kick.

In large bowl, mix all together. For best flavor, try to make a few hours ahead of time to chill and let all get happy together :)
