Black Bean Salsa

This is a favourite recipe of ours, we make it often and it is always a hit. The batch we made yesterday was extra special, having been made with tomatoes and cilantro from my garden. So I thought I would take the opportunity to share the recipe.

Black Bean Salsa

1 can black beans
2 tomatoes, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Drain and rinse black beans. Combine black beans and remaining ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate.

Serve with your favourite tortilla chip. We like it with the Tostitos Hint of Lime chips. It's also quite good just eaten with a fork. :)

Wow, that looks SO GOOD!

I'm going through Mexican food withdrawal since we moved to New England... this could be a great antidote!

Trust me people, you want to make this recipe. It is good.

I made it to take to Mr & Mrs. Friend's house on Saturday night and the first thing Mr. Friend said when I walked in the door was "Hello JavaChick, where's the Black Bean Salsa?"

And do you want to know how much leftover salsa I brought home? None.

Trust me. Make the salsa. You know you want to. :)
