Zesty Fresh Tomato Black Bean Salsa

Tasty AND Healthy!

Tasty AND Healthy!

A mouth pleaser that’s bursting with fresh tomatoes, sweet corn, and savory beans. Use this salsa as a dip for chips, or a topper for tacos, tortillas, baked fish and chicken.  You can dial down or up the heat factor depending on how many jalapenos you dare to add.

1 Green Onion, chopped
Juice of Half a Lemon
2 medium Tomatoes, chopped
1/2 Sweet Bell Pepper, minced
1/2 c. Black Beans, (canned) rinsed and drained
1/2 c. canned Corn kernels or 1 cooked corn cob’s worth
1/4 c. fresh Cilantro or Parsley, coarsely chopped
2 Jalapeno, seeded & minced OR 1 tsp. hot sauce
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir.  Taste.   Add salt if you think it needs it.   Ketchup is salty so I opt out of adding it.   Makes 3 cups.

***If you haven’t got the fresh herb, then add 1 tsp. Chili Powder and 1 tsp. of Cumin Powder.
