Black Bean Salsa Recipe

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Happy Cinco de Mayo, y'all!  It's a big day here in Texas.. We are always up for a reason to eat Mexican food and have a margarita on a patio.  To celebrate, I made my yummy black bean salsa and want to share the recipe with you! My aunt gave me this recipe years ago, and I have taken it to so many events and always get asked how to make it.  Everyone loves it, and it's super simple!

2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can tomatoes with green chilis
16oz jar hot or medium chunky picante sauce
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 teaspoons cumin
1/4 cup dried cilantro

Just mix everything in a bowl and let sit in the fridge a few hours before serving..  I usually let mine sit in the fridge overnight and eat it the next day.. Believe me, it doesn't taste as good if you eat it right when you make it.. The flavors need to work together for a few hours.
