Black Bean and Corn Salsa

I was shucking corn earlier today, and I kept getting random bits of cilantro in the bowl with the corn. Now I clean my kitchen before I do anything, so this wasn’t something left on the counter. It was Deliberate. So I’m like “I’ll make some Black Bean and Corn Salsa for you just let me get this corn shucked?” Shucking went on without incident after that. So here’s what I did.

1cup fresh corn (removed from cob and nuked for 2mins then shocked under cold water) 1cup black beans. Drained and rinsed. 1 each red, yellow, and orange tomato. 1/2 a green bell pepper. 1 small onion, 1 jalapeño (optional or variable on how much spice you like) 2 garlic scapes, juice of 1/2 a limeFollow

Now, chop all the peppers, cilantro, tomatoes, onions, scapes, into small pieces/diced Toss in bowl with corn and black beans. Squeeze half a lime over it, stir, and let marry in the fridge


And that’s what you’ll get. A delicious confetti looking salsa that goes great with nachos! Or Huveos Rancheros, or whatever Tex Mex/Mexicali/Mexican dish you feel like making!
