This dish  makes an any time dish to serve your guest-Summer or winter, this was adopted from a dish on line which was a vegetarian three bean dish.I wanted to give it a little Indian spice  so I added a few spices, It turned out tasty. I thought I can share this as this is a healthy dish with variety of Beans, Onions and peppers.

I used equal size cans of Black beans, White Beans-also known as Northern Bean and Kidney beans  known as Rajma or similar to it in India- all with just salt. rinsed them all well and kept it aside. Used the same size can of diced tomatoes.

I used Green Onions, green Bell Peppers and Pasilla peppers-dark green in color but thinner then Bell Peppers-you can buy them in almost any market. I used about 1/2 cup of chopped and peeled Summer Squash-gives a natural sweet taste.

It would look very colorful to have other color sweet peppers also.  Optional item-Cheese-shredded. The photo shows with Cheese.

Spices I used were Ginger garlic paste, salt ( use very little as beans are salted) , Dhana Jeera -Coriander -cumin powder, Chili powder( you can substitute these spices with taco seasoning).

This dish served 4 to 6  people . I used salad bowls. Served it with warm corn Tortillas and Avocado slices to make a complete meal. If you enjoy having Cheese, you can add on top with other garnish.

The picture shows with Cheese-it is optional.

Hope you enjoy it. My family did.
