Black Bean and Corn Salsa.

Black bean and corn salsa is such a vibrant blend of ingredients. It’s a great appetizer to make for game day. Simply grab your favorite torilla or corn scoops. It also takes just 15 minutes to make.

Grab these ingredients

Black beans: We used canned here. Make sure to rinse and drain the beans thoroughly. If you don’t rinse them thoroughly, they will give the other ingredients an appealing gray color. You can also cook your own black beans if you prefer, but make sure to completely cool and drain them before adding them to the rest of the ingredients.

Corn: We used Mexican corn in this recipe. However, you can use regular corn, white or yellow corn. You can also cook your own corn if you prefer.

Cilantro: Make sure to use fresh cilantro that’s bright green with no yellowing or wilted leaves.

Lime Juice: This recipe calls for a splash of lime juice for freshness and some zing. However, we used all the juice from the lime. Add it to your liking.

Tomatoes: We used regular diced canned tomatoes and in this recipe. Of course, if you make this in the summer, fresh tomatoes work great.

Rotel Tomatoes: We used Rotel canned tomatoes along with the regular diced tomatoes. The Rotel tomatoes have just a slight kick and round out the flavors in this recipe.

Let’s get this party started! That’s right, you can wait an hour before your guests arrive to mix up this perfect salsa, then let it rest until your guests arrive. The flavor is better the longer it sits.

How to make this easy recipe

  1. Open the corn and diced tomatoes, drain them and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Open the black beans, rinse them thoroughly and drain well. Add them to the bowl.
  3. Add the onion, cilantro and lime juice and mix thoroughly.
