Garden Fresh Black Bean Salsa

Cha! Cha! Cha! It's time to Salsa!!!!

I love fresh black bean salsa (or some folks call it "cowboy caviar"). Since my jalapeño plant is sprouting jalapeñoes like crazy, I thought - its time to make some.

This is great with corn or flour tortilla chips as an appetizer or snack. You can make a chicken sauté or bake with it - or throw it on a salad. So yummy!

  • 1/2 red onion - chopped
  • 1 can black beans - rinsed and drained
  • 2 small or one large jalapeno chopped and seeded
  • 2-3 medium tomatoes diced
  • 1 can of whole kernel sweet corn drained
  • 1t minced garlic
  • S&P
  • 1t cumin
  • 2T olive oil
  • Juice from 1/2 lime

Chop all your veggies & toss together in a large bowl w/ cumin, S&P, olive oil, & put the lime juice on last & toss. Store in an airtight Tupperware for up to 5days (but I bet it won't last that long!)
Other uses - saute with some chicken and put over rice, put it in a tortilla with some grilled chicken and cheese, throw it on top of baked chicken  - TONS of other things - or just eat it with a spoon - AWESOME and healthy!
