Black Bean and Corn Salsa

If you share this, maybe someone will make it for you~!
Black Bean and Corn Salsa is such a perfectly festive chunky salsa that loads up your chip with a dip that makes your mouth dance! Done in minutes, you can go from prep to attack in about 5. And the best part is when you run out (cause at a party this dip is da bomb), it wont take much time to refill the bowl for another round.

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Looking for an excuse to make Mexican food this week?  Here are a few: The sun is shining…or not. Its almost summer vacation. You paid your mortgage today. What I am saying is YOU NEED NO EXCUSE!
Tacos, salsa, and basically anything smothered in hot sauce and sour cream is like a gift from above.
I mean, it would be an insult to the vegetables that grow if you didn’t eat them, you know? Dig into this dip and get a full bite of corn, cilantro, black beans, tomatoes and onions.
This corn and black bean salsa also makes for a fantastic topping right on your tacos or enchiladas.
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 cups fresh tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, diced
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • juice of 1 lime (use a lime squeezer to get the most out of your lime)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • tortilla chips
  • Optional: Avocado and/or Mango
TIP: Wanna get super homemade because your mother in laws is coming over? Make some Mexican Street Corn and shave it off over using canned. Takes a ton of time, but might be well worth your effort for an authentic salsa.

Corn and Black Bean Salsa

In a large bowl combine corn, black beans, onion, tomato, jalapeno and cilantro.

While you could opt for a freeze dried cilantro…don’t. Most stores keep fresh cilantro right in the vegetable aisles and its super cheap to get a ton. Fresh cilantro is part of the deal when it comes to breaking down the barrier of an OK salsa and a WOW salsa.

(funny story: my husband one time brought home CULANTRO and not cilantro. I had never even heard of it before. It’s a fatter leaf so I knew something was wrong. We got a big kick out of it, used it anyway, and guess what- delicious!)
