recipe: black bean and corn salsa


welcome july!!!! phew here already?
okay yes i know i said i was going to give you the secret ingredient for the cookies. tomorrow! oh and yes for all of you that requested the pan de vonos recipe...i'm trying to make my mom stop long enough to sit down and write it down. she promises to write it down before she heads home... but for now here's my new favorite salsa and its just PERFECT for bringing to a BBQ for uh i oh i don't know, maybe this 4th of july weekend? it's so easy and fool proof.
there's something about having your kitchen savvy mother here to really jump start that feeling of "hey, i'm not that bad at cooking...look!" so here you go, the perfect salsa to bring to your neighborhood BBQ this forth of july:

black bean and corn salsa
what you will need:
1 can of corn
2 cans of black beans
2 large tomatoes
1 avocado
1 to 2 jalepeno pepper
1 red or white onion
a small bundle of cilantro
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of redwine vinegar
3 to 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of pepper.

combine in a small bowl your olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. whisk. set aside.

drain your corn and black beans. rinse your black beans.
chop up your tomatoes, onion, avocado, cilantro and jalepeno.
combine in a large bowl corn, black beans, tomatoes, onion, avocado, cilantro, and jalepeno.

pour over your ingredients your olive oil mixture, and stir in.

enjoy with chips, or as a side dish.
mmmmm.
and yes my mom was impressed.

revisiting the team Jacob...you sure it isn't a team Lautner thing??? I mean that boy is pretty fantastically ripped...but I still like Edward better...

Thanks for the recipe! The girls and I are going to dinner and a movie tonight- I am more excited than a teenager about Eclipse.... scary but true!

Happy 4th of July!

Marie said...

Team Jacob? What are you talking about. I thought you were totally for Edward....I havent seen it yet...

Hmmm, I might have to try this variation! I'm always asked to bring my black bean salsa to get togethers. I like that I can throw it together in about 5 minutes:
3 cans black beans, 1 can mexicorn, 2 cans diced tomatoes with jalapenos, 1 bunch green onions, 2 fresh tomatoes. Rinse the beans, drain the corn, drain as much liquid off the canned 'maters as makes you happy (I don't like runny salsa), chop up the green onions and tomato, throw it all in a bowl - done! I admit...I've been known to eat it with a spoon. And it makes homemade enchiladas even more tasty when cooked into the filling.

I miss the movies. Perhaps I shall attend one this weekend!

Where did you get the idea your cooking needed serious improvement?! That salsa will be perfect for me: just after lunch, I told Honey that I needed new ideas of summer salads, because I don't want to bake/broil/fry/do-whatever-involves-heat when it is that hot (here it's 35°C, which is in the upper 90s for you, if I'm not mistaken).
Thanks for sharing. And please, share more recipes, they're great!

See. Now I'm drooling on my keyboard. ;)

I have a recipe very similar to this -- we call it Ugly Bean Dip. Love these bean dips!!!

DJ Rose said...

hooray for team jacob.

I'm so making this for this weekend. Thanks for sharing. :)

Thanks for the recipe. I needed something new to try. Would it be okay if I posted the recipe on my food blog if I say it's yours and link back to you?

This looks sooooo good, I am definitely making this (but I think I'll wimp out and replace the jalapeno peppers with milder ones -- I know, I'm a baby!)
Btw, what does pan de vonos mean? and what is it?

sadieloree said...

this looks delicious!! Thanks for sharing!

mmm. i love this salsa! i make it all the time (though i've never added the oil, vinegar, lemon juice - i'll have to try it that way). it's the BEST with tostitos with a hint of lime, though. seriously. MUCH better than regular tortilla chips. try it, you won't be sorry!

Oh I should not have looked at this 5 min. before lunch! It is too bad for me that i do not have all the ingredients my tummy is so sad, because I love all things salsa!

Kaleena said...

I just made this for dinner with my husband it was outstanding....

Karena said...

We made this salsa for a huge group yesterday for the 4th. It was gone in a flash and we received so many compliments. Thank you!

CJ said...

Made this recipe tonight for dinner. Good thing I halved it since there were only 4 of us. We put it on our burgers, we dipped chips into it and there is STILL a bit left over. YUMMMMMMMMMMO!

Amy said...

I made this recipe for the Fourth and it was a big hit. I think it will be my new "go to" recipe for summer potlucks!!!

Made it for the 4th, my sister-in-law ate almost the whole bowl, seriously, I got like 3 tastes, but it was a great hit! My sister-in-law was down with bad gas the next day, serves her right! Thanks for the recipe! PS, you doing the Fallow Field show this year?

marla grace said...

YUM!

Aaron and Kristi said...

Can't wait to try this! I had something similar at a BBQ and haven't found a recipe for it yet, but this sounds spot on! Thanks! and.... go team edward! but Jacob can take his shirt off as much as he wants and I'm fine with that! :)

Line said...

Just some quick feedback: I made this salsa for the 1st time last week, without the avocado (none left!) and it was such a hit I'm doing it again now for our picnic tomorrow!
Thanks so much for sharing!
