Simple Black Bean and Corn Salsa Recipe

This time of year, there’s always a party you have to go and you need to bring a dish to share! If you are like me, you want it to be simple to make but full of flavor.  This black bean and corn salsa is an easy, fan-favorite recipe.

The recipe came from my friend Emilie.  She is the queen of dips and appetizers.  It is so easy that the kids can help make it and great for anything where you need to take a dish to share.

Can of black beans
Can of whole kernel sweet corn
Lime Juice to taste (we used 1/4 cup) – alt. 2 squeezed limes
Bunch of cilantro
2 ripe avocados, diced

Recipe Directions –

Open the cans of black beans and corn, rinse and drain.  Place in a mixing bowl.
Open can of tomatoes (do not drain), dump into the mixing bowl with beans and corn.
Add lime juice (either 2 fresh squeezed limes) or about 1/4 cup lime juice or to your taste.
Next, add fresh cut cilantro, about 1/3 cup loosely packed.  Dry will work as well.
Mix in the diced up avocado and stir gently until mixed well.  Let sit in the fridge or on the counter to allow the flavors to meld together for best taste.  Best served within a few hours of making.
