Black Bean Salsa


Anytime my mom hosted a party or had to bring a dish to a party she always made her Black Bean Salsa. It is super simple to prepare and packed with flavor. Not to mention it is rather healthy for you! Last week I made it and gave out samples at the café. It was a hit! Everyone loved it. Now we are going to feature it on our menu. The best part is it is so easy to make that the kids I work love that they can do it by themselves (well except for the chopping).

This salsa keeps great in the refrigerator. It gets better day after day as all the ingredients marry together.


2 cans (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed

2 cans white shoepeg corn, drained

2 cans diced tomatoes with green chile, drained

6 Tablespoons lime juice

3 Tablespoons vegetable oil

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 Cup red onion, chopped

1/2 Cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt — or season to your tastes

In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Simple as that 🙂

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.



About kristinegough86

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
