Roasted Corn and Black Bean Salsa
By the end of the week I had what seemed like a bushel of tomatoes on my counter. I didn't feel like making tomato sauce but some fresh salsa with home-baked tortillas sounded like the perfect Friday night treat!
The great thing about salsa is that pretty much anything goes. In this recipe, I used tomatoes, canned black beans and roasted corn as the main ingredients with cilantro, lime and a bit of chipotle sauce to finish it off.
The sweetness of the roasted corn really makes this salsa! I actually broiled it because we were out of propane. I shucked it and stuck it right under the heat until the kernels darkened (rotate it so it broils evenly).
Don't get too caught up in the quantities - just throw in whatever feels right or is on your counter!
2 large tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice of 1 lime
1 small can of black beans
1/2 red onion, diced
1 medium jalepeno, diced
1 ear of corn, roasted or broiled
dash of cumin
couples dashed of chipotle hot sauce
dash of salt
What to do:
Cut niblets off ear of corn.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.
Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.
