Black Bean and Corn Salsa


I've been testing out a few recipes to go with my Super Bowl Chicken Taco Bar this Sunday and this one came up a winner. It's easy to put together and ads a fresh, flavorful and healthy element  to the lineup.   Black beans and corn come together with a sweet and spicy kick.  It's so good, you won't be able to stop eating it!


  • It's also extremely versatile.  Use it in place of chicken for a tasty vegan taco filling or add two cups of the salad and one cup of your chicken taco filling to a quart of chicken stock and you have instant Chicken Enchilada Soup!


  • Go ahead.  Pile it on!

I use bottled Italian dressing for the dressing on this salsa with a few shakes of hot sauce and a tablespoon of sugar. I also put some fresh chopped cilantro in as well ! I am fixing it for tomorrow too!
Bottled Italian dressing is a great go-to! Have fun watching the game!
