Black Bean Salsa

Posted Aug 25 2008 3:40pm
I wanted to make a good dip to eat while watching The Big Football Game this weekend. I first thought of the always delicious fresh salsa, or guacamole, but then I settled on black bean salsa, which is more hearty and seems to be a better match for the Buffalo Chicken Wings that I was also making. I've made several different variations on this salsa, including cooking it, but this simple recipe proved to be a winner. As with most salsas the most important thing is to use good fresh ingredients for a clean fresh flavor.

Black Bean Salsa

Serves 2-4

2 cups cooked black beans, or one-15 oz can cooked black beans (drained and rinsed)

1/3 cup chopped onion

1 Jalapeño pepper- seeds removed and chopped small

1 medium tomato- chopped small

1/4 cup fresh cilantro- chopped fine

juice of one lime

Salt and pepper to taste


Mix the beans, onion, pepper, tomato and cilantro together in a bowl

Cut the lime on half through the center and squeeze each half in to the mixture

(tip: squeeze over a fork or through a small sieve to keep and seeds from dropping into the salsa.)

salt and pepper to taste

(optional) if jalapeño peppers are too spicy for you use 1/ 2 of a bell pepper (de-seeded) instead

Serve with corn tortillas, enjoy
