Black Bean and Corn Salsa
You can’t have a fall party without salsa, and our delicious Black Bean and Corn Salsa recipe is so easy to make and so versatile for a variety of uses. Serve it in a fresh, homemade tortilla to dip with warm, soft corn tortillas, and add fresh lime juice and cilantro for a tasty appetizer. You can also roll up warm corn tortillas in the salsa, and use it to fill burritos and tacos, or top salads and sandwiches. If you want to jazz it up a bit, add some fresh cilantro, diced red onion, and a squeeze of lime once it’s made. For a spicier salsa, add dried red chilies and lime juice.
This salsa is a simple, fresh, and easy-to-make salsa, with a wonderful flavor. The use of black beans as the base ingredient gives the salsa a nice, hearty flavor, and the corn gives it a sweet and fresh taste.
By far my most favorite food is chips and salsa! It’s essentially a food category to me. This Black Bean and Corn Salsa is fast and simple to make, and it works well with just about everything!
Almost every Friday night while the kids were infants, some lovely friends of ours would invite us over for game night. We’d have a lot of laughter, a few beers, and a batch of what we affectionately called “dip.” This salsa was created by mixing a bit of this and a little of that one night, and we still get thrilled when we prepare it 15 years later! This salsa is easy to prepare and uses items that I typically have on hand. It’s a fantastic addition to any of our delicious Mexican meals!
Is it possible to freeze this salsa?
We strongly advise against freezing this salsa. It would not retain its crisp flavor after freezing because of the materials utilized. The good news is that this food is SO DELICIOUS that you should have no difficulty eating it!
What is Shoepeg corn, and how does it differ from regular corn?
Corn from Shoepeg is sweeter than ordinary corn. The kernels are often smaller and shaped like a peg. Other kinds of corn may readily be substituted for this salsa; shoepeg is just our favorite!

This salsa is a family favorite that can be used in a variety of ways.
