This is a really good salsa. I made it this past weekend and it was delicious. Things I did differently were : I used Fresh tomatoes not canned. About 2 medium ones that I chopped and took the pulp out of. I also added 2 tablespoons of TACO seasoning mix. This gave it a nice flavor. You can also substitute with cumin if you'd like. I omitted the oil and the avocado. I added about 1/4 cup of chopped jalapeno in. I let it sit over night so the flavors could marinate really well. With the leftovers I made black bean quesadillas the next day adding cheddar cheese to the tortillas. Will make again !!


Very VERY tasty! However, I cut the recipe back by half. ommited the olive oil, added the full quarter cup of lime juice, and used all the cilantro. I also found that using fresh corn right off the corn is WONDERFUL and very cost effective during the summer months.


I love black bean and corn salsa! For this recipe, I used fresh tomato instead of canned, left out the onion (I don't care for them raw) and the avocado (did'nt have one), and I added some cumin. I served it over enchiladas, but could have eaten it with a spoon (and still might, there is some left over). Thanks for the recipe!
