I discovered this really cute blog.
On it, I found this really awesome recipe.
I made it tonight.
It was so worthwhile that I am staying up late to post about it. 😉
Black Bean and Corn Roasted Salsa
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, mostly leaves
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup minced red onion (I used vidalia)
1 tablespoon minced jalapeño
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 14.5-ounce can fire roasted tomatoes, well drained
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup corn kernels
the juice of 1 lime*
The original recipe called for the use of a food processor, which I don’t have. I just used a knife, which is basically the same thing but it requires more elbow grease. 😉 If you do have a food processor, be sure to check out the original post for easier directions.
1. Chop the cilantro, garlic, onion, jalapeño, and tomatoes until they are very fine. Combine in a bowl and stir in salt.
2. Add the beans, corn, and juice. Stir well and enjoy served on tortilla chips.
* I used 2 tablespoons lemon juice
