food: black bean salsa

I made this super yummy salsa the other night for a Christmas party. It's easy to make, and it makes a lot. Perfect for a get-together. Or if you are having a major bean and fresh veggie craving ;).

Black Bean Salsa
1 (14.5 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can light red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can whole kernel corn
1 can white shoepeg corn
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 red onion, finely diced
2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small bottle (12 oz.) Zesty Italian Dressing

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!


  1. I love this stuff. Have you tried eating I tried eating it wwith tostitos hint of lime tortilla chips? You should. It is fantastic.

  2. I love black bean salsa! Thanks for the recipe. It tastes good with so many things! and what Julie said above, those chips ARE good!
    You can also put a scoop of it in your salad with some cooked chicken and southwest ranch sauce for an awesome southwest chicken salad!
