Rinse black beans thoroughly in a colander & place in a stockpot. Cover beans with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling stir and lower temperature to lowest heat setting. Cover pot and simmer for approximately 3 hours or until beans are tender, making sure to stir once an hour. Do not discard liquid from beans.
When beans are tender heat a large frying pan over medium/high heat. Add oil and sauté onions until sweating. Add hamburger and thoroughly cook, stirring consistently. Add garlic and bell pepper and continue cooking until pepper is tender.
Meanwhile, add diced tomatoes with liquid, cumin, coriander and lime juice to beans. Cut sausage and add to beans. Add ground beef mixture and frozen corn. Raise heat and simmer for about 15 mins.
