Black Bean Salsa Recipe

I swear this will be the most delicious black bean and corn salsa you have ever tasted. It is so flavorful, fresh, delicious, and addictive!

You need: 2 cans black beans, 2 cans diced tomatoes, 1 can or frozen bag corn, 1 medium red onion (not pictured), 1/4 C cilantro, 1 large avocado, tobasco sauce, 1 lime, 1 tsp. cumin, 2 tsp. basil, 1 T. red wine vinegar, 1 T. olive oil, and salt and pepper.

Drain and rinse the black beans. Pour into large bowl. (You will notice this bowl wasn't big enough and I had to switch mid-way through the recipe.)

Add the corn. I prefer frozen corn that has been thawed. It seems fresher and crunchier.
Drain and add the tomatoes. I used one can of regular diced tomatoes and one can of diced tomatoes with chiles.
Chop the avocado into small chunks. The avocados I found were pretty small, so I used two.Add the chopped onion. I used a small red onion, but you can also use one bunch of green onions.
Squeeze in the juice of one lime.

Add 1 T. olive oil,
1 ts. cumin,
2 ts. chopped basil-dried or fresh. I had dried, so that's what I used.
Next you need 1 T. red wine vinegar.Now add 1/4 C fresh cilantro. I like mine chopped really finely, so I use a food processor.

Now add tobasco sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix it all together and refrigerate several hours.

Oh, it's SO GOOD! I like to serve it with tortilla chips. Some people just grab a fork and dig in.

Enjoy! I'd love to hear what you think if you make it!

Pin It!

We just made it (except for the avocado). I thought it would be better to marinate until tomorrow. We will add the avocado in the morning!! It tasted yummy though!!

It was the hit of our Memorial Day gathering. After we got home, I was hungry so I heated a tortilla & used the salsa as filling. YUMMY!!

Susan said...

My husband would so love this recipe - unfortunately for him, it's not my thing! May have to show it to him for him to make on his own.

Just say Julie said...

Hello?! I had to make this last night. Just what I needed, and sooooo yummy. Next time I may have to double the batch and give hubs his own bowl!

Finding Normal said...

Did I tell you I made this last weekend? Because I did, and then I ate the gigantic bowl almost all by myself. :/ It's waaaay too good. Would be semi-healthy too, if I didn't use an entire bag of Scoops to get it in my mouth.

That looks really good! I may just have to add that to my upcoming binder of recipes I'm putting together for myself.
