Happy Tuesday everyone! Can you believe that it is almost April?! 2017 is flying by.
I am really excited that the weather is getting warmer. I guess it has been warm in Texas for a while, but it is nice that we are getting consistent 80 degree weather now!
As you know, warmer weather brings lots of fun things including BBQs and grill-outs with friends. I thought it would be fun to share a really yummy salsa recipe that you can bring to your next party. You could also make it for yourself, but this recipe makes A TON of salsa – no need to double the recipe if going to a party.
I made this salsa a few times last year when going over to friend’s houses. I honestly just kind of made it up as I went and it turned out pretty good! What can go wrong when you are using all of your favorite ingredients?
I think anyone can appreciate a fresh salsa recipe, so here is my version of a fresh corn salsa (feel free to modify as needed).
Total Time: 15-20 minutes
- 1 bag of frozen sweet corn
- 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 4 large tomatoes, diced
- 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
- 4 jalapeños, diced
- 1.5 cups diced red onion
- 2 TBS garlic (fresh or from jar)
- 1 TBS Chili Powder
- 1 TBS Cumin
- 1 TBS Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir well.
- You might need to add a little more lime juice or salt and pepper depending on how it tastes when you try it.
- I think it always tastes better after sitting in the fridge for a couple of hours, so I would recommend making it ahead of time and letting it sit in the fridge. It allows all of the flavors to soak in really nicely.
Also, something you can do to change it up is add avocado! It seems like avocado has been so popular lately, so I might add that the next time I bring it to a party.
Let me know what you think if you end up trying this recipe. I am always looking for new tips and suggestions.
