We've been encouraging our kids to try spicier foods as they've gotten older. My girls, in particular, are sensitive and will say things are “too spicy” when there's a little too much salt to their taste. With this Black Bean and Corn Salsa, they saw the jalapeño before it went in, and they ate it anyway. The lime mellowed it out, and I love the chunky texture.

If you have leftovers, it is great to mix in to some cooked brown rice. That gives you a fantastic gluten-free, vegetarian meal with complete protein thanks to the beans and rice combo.

What do I need to make this delicious corn salsa: 

  • 11 oz. can white corn, drained
  • 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, washed with stems removed, then chopped
  • 1-2 limes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt, to taste

How to make black bean salsa at home: 

  1. Mix all the vegetables together, and add the cilantro.
  2. Juice 1-2 limes to make 2-3 Tbsp of lime juice, and add along with the garlic and salt (to taste).
  3. Stir together and if time allows, refrigerate to allow flavors to meld together.

Do I need to let this black bean and corn salsa chill? 

It's best to let this chill before serving, so the flavors meld together. If you need to serve this in a hurry it will still taste good it just won't be quite as complete. The good news is that once you make a batch you can store it in the refrigerator for a few days (if it lasts that long) so you can use it in other recipes or for snacking.

A batch of this delicious black bean salsa doesn't last too long in our house. The kids love corn salsa for snacking and for topping tacos because it is crunchy, mild, and a little sweet thanks to the corn!
