Tomatoes Stuffed with Corn and Black Beans

Meaty beefsteak tomatoes are easily found in most supermarkets and are the go-to choice for thick slices on burgers or BLTs. When stuffed and baked, as here, they are meltingly delicious. Don't waste a bit of these amazing tomatoes -- use the insides you scoop out here to make a simple Spanish appetizer called Pan con Tomate, below.

Ingredients

  • 4 beefsteak tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup corn kernels (from 1 large ear)
  • 2 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 cup drained, rinsed black beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar (2 ounces), divided
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Salt and pepper

Cook's Note

Pan con Tomate
Spread reserved tomato flesh on rustic bread. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in a 450 degrees oven until edges are deep brown and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Drizzle with more olive oil and serve.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice top 1/2 inch from tomatoes and scoop out flesh (reserve for another use; see below). In a medium skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium. Add corn and scallion whites and cook until crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in jalapeno, beans, 1/4 cup cheddar, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Step 2

    Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with 1 teaspoon oil. Brush tomato skins with 1 teaspoon oil, season all over with salt and pepper, and place in dish. Fill tomatoes with corn mixture. Combine remaining 1/4 cup cheddar, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, and 2 teaspoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and divide among tomatoes. Tent dish loosely with foil and bake 10 minutes. Uncover and bake until tomatoes are soft and breadcrumbs are deep golden, about 5 minutes more.

    Very quick and tasty recipe but I think there was a mistake in writing it. It says to separate the 2 scallions used into the green and white parts. It tells you when to put the white parts in but it never says to put the green part of the scallions in.

    This was easy, very pretty, healthy, and great. You can't ask for more than that!
