Just Wanted To Bring This Up Again...

My daughter's boyfriend  brought over a whole bowl of beautiful home grown tomatoes and thought I'd use some of them to make the yummy black bean salsa I told you about back in July. I learned about this recipe from Party Box Design. Thought it would be good to bring up again, in case you forgot about it or didn't have a chance to make it. I have made it a few times since July and I made it again last night to have with some shredded beef burritos. I also knew there would be be leftovers --a good thing for my youngest daughter to take for lunch on her first day of school today. For some reason she doesn't like sandwiches for lunch & I have the hardest time thinking of things she can bring to school. 

Here's the recipe:

2 15oz cans black beans, rinsed & drained.
2 TBS chopped pickled jalapenos or fresh jalapenos
4 cloves minced garlic
3 TBS olive oil
1 10oz package frozen corn (I used canned corn) 1 cup diced

1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 large tomato seeded & diced
3 TBS chopped cilantro
3 TBS fresh lime juice
1 TBS chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin

Cut and combine all ingredients and serve with tortilla chips.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.
