Simple Homemade Black Bean Salsa

Ingredients:

1 can corn (drained)

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)

1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies (do not drain)

½ red onion (diced)

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve with your favorite tortilla chips. Doesn’t get much easier than that!

You can also substitute fresh tomatoes for the canned tomatoes.

Other optional ingredients include: avocados (diced), black olives (sliced), fresh cilantro (chopped), salt (to taste) or really any ingredient that sounds good to you.

Ingredients:

1 ½ pounds plum tomatoes (6 to 8), cored, halved and seeded

½ medium red onion, minced (1/2 cup)

1 serrano chili or 1 jalapeno (ribs and seeds removed for less heat if desired), minced

1 small garlic clove, minced

½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

2 tablespoons freshly squezzed lime juice

Coarse salt

Preparation:

Chop tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces; transfer to a medium bowl. Add onion, chili, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice; season generously with salt. Mix to combine. Let stand 15 minutes to develop flavor.

Optional ingredients can be added to this recipe as well. You are only limited by your imagination.

Tip:

Use a paring knife to core a tomato: Insert tip next to stem, and then make a shallow cut all around; remove stem. To seed a tomato, cut in half lengthwise. Holding cut side down, gently squeeze to remove most of the seeds. Slicing a tomato is best done with a serrated or very sharp-bladed knife.

Add the tomatoes, coriander, onion, chilies, lime juice and salt. Mix well.

I recommend adding less onion, salt and lime juice at first and then adding more in until you reach your desired taste.
