Fresh Black Bean and Corn Salsa!


This is soooo delicious–I mean, what’s not to love about a this?  And don’t let it fool you!  It’s not just for dipping with chips.  I put this stuff on EVERYTHING!  I top grilled chicken breasts with it, adding a sprinkle of jack cheese, or sprinkled with a little more lime juice and served with coconut rice.  Be creative.  You’ll be happy with the results!!

So here’s how you make it happen.

1 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1 1/2 c. grilled summer corn or white shoepeg corn

2 medium tomatoes, cubed

1/2 red onion, chopped

1 green pepper. chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

2 jalapenos chopped  — careful here!  that’s some heat!  Be super careful handling them and do NOT include the seeds if you dont want much heat!

1/3 c. fresh lime juice

1/3 c. olive oil

1/2. fresh cilantro chopped

1 t. salt

1/2-1 t. cumin (depends on your tasteebuds)

pinch cayenne

garlic–i roast my garlic so it is pretty mellow in flavor so I add 5-6 cloves.  If it’s raw, stick to 1-2 cloves

Throw each ingredient into the bowl, then wait until the end to mix all the gorgeous fresh colors and flavors together.
