1 1/2 cups water
1 cup dry couscous
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
1 can corn kernels
1 1/2 cup salsa
1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or dried cilantro to taste
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper

Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Stir in the couscous and bring to a boil again. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with a fork. Cover and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix the beans, corn, salsa, peppers, cilantro, salt and pepper. Add the couscous and mix well.
Serve warm in a pita as a sandwich, or on the side as salad.
