Black Bean Corn Salsa

Anytime is the perfect time for making salsas!  I like to make many versions from fresh tomato salsa, tomatillo salsa, fruity salsas, to hearty salsas like this black bean corn salsa. 

The reason I like this one, is because it can be enjoyed as is with your choice of chips, a condiment served with meat, or rolled in a wrap made into a healthy burrito.

I wish I had gotten a photo on the first day…..though the day 2 flavors are even better once the ingredients have settled.

I enjoy the color combo and the black beans + corn compliment each other well. Adding the other flavor – packed ingredients to create the perfect salsa.

Ingredients: (your choice of fresh or organic canned or frozen)

  • 1 small tomato dice, well drained
  • 1 1/2 cups of corn (well drained if canned)
  • 1 cup of black beans
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped bell pepper (green + red)
  • jalapeños  chopped (to your liking)
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped cilantro 

Prepping  Instructions: 

Note: if using fresh beans , allow them to soak over night or at the least several hours before cooking. If using canned, it’s important to rinse them throughly. 

  1. In two separate pots, warm/cook –  beans and corn. 
  2. Once both are done,  let  both sit until cool.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and cover.
  4. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve. 

Enjoy!
