  • Black beans: pinto beans will work great with this recipe too.

This Black Bean and Corn Salsa Recipe reminds me of a delicious Pico de Gallo with more veggies and flavor. You can use this Black Bean and Corn Salsa recipe for so many recipes and occasions. Add a few scoops to your chicken, steak, pork dish, baked potato, salad or just enjoy as is as a dip with chips (or veggies).

This salsa also makes a super simple side dish that’s packed with protein. Add this to your Taco Tuesday night menu along with my Homemade Guacamole and Pico de Gallo. For a healthy Taco Tuesday Night, make my Taco Lettuce Wraps for a guilt-free dinner. Everyone will love this idea!

I prefer to enjoy this dip with tortilla chips as they make the perfect match. There is so much crunchiness, flavor and freshness from this salsa you can enjoy this year-round. This is also a great game day snack to have especially if you are wanting a healthier option.
