This Black Bean & Corn Salsa is exactly what you need to make to take your chip experience to the next level. It’s incredibly easy and budget-friendly to make. Plus the flavors are so satisfying that you’ll have everyone begging you to make it over and over again.

INGREDIENTS

ROMA TOMATOES: my favorite tomatoes to use in this dish are Roma tomatoes because they are slightly firmer with a bit of crispiness but many different types of tomatoes could be used.

AVOCADO: since avocado tends to brown easily, it’s best to add this right when you are ready to serve and eat, although the lime juice will help keep it from browning quickly.

ONION: I like red onion for the look but any type will work.

CILANTRO: I’m heavy-handed with cilantro because it’s my FAVORITE but if it’s not yours, just reduce or eliminate to your taste preference.

CORN: I always have canned corn ready but if you have fresh, it would taste fantastic! And frozen would work too- just be sure to thaw it out.

VARIATION OPTIONS

CORN– fresh, canned, or frozen will work great

ONION– any type that you like works well

CILANTRO– you either love it or hate it so feel free to add more or less depending on your taste buds

OIL– some people prefer to add a little olive oil to this dish. Totally up to you. I would recommend around 1/4 cup or less

SPICE– need it spicy? Add some freshly diced jalapeños to give it a nice zip!

BUDGET/TIME-SAVING IDEAS

I am always looking for ideas to save money or time. Here are a couple of ways this could help you if this recipe is out of budget or you are on a time crunch:

  • use canned, frozen, or fresh corn depending on what you have available or on sale
  • use whatever tomato is the best price and readily available
  • eliminate avocado if it’s not easy to find
  • meal prep- lasts up to 5 days in the refrigerator (minus the avocado)

HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES

Normally I have a lot of ideas to help make dishes healthier but this dish is already very healthy! Eliminate avocado if you really need to reduce fats (although avocado has very healthy fats) or eliminate salt.
