Okay, someone help me out here. Where does the fat come from in this recipe???

1 cup of corn and 1 cup of cooked black beans each has 0.9 grams of fat according to MasterCook. Few foods have no fat (even the tomato has a little). This is a good thing, since we do need some fat (just not nearly as much as most people eat on the Standard American Diet (SAD)).
