Put the Lime in the Margarita Salsa

An EASY and refreshing salsa! It's perfect for your next picnic, party or any gathering.

Servings: 6-8

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz (or comparable size) canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz (or comparable size) canned corn, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 a red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 a green pepper, chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • juice from one lime (about 4 tablespoons, depending on the size)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

How-To:

  1. Place all ingredients into a large bowl.
  2. Lightly mix until ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Roll the lime on a countertop prior to cutting and juicing. The rolling loosens the flesh of the fruit to allow you to squeeze the juice more easily and effectively.
  • You could used bottled lime juice for this, but fresh tastes slightly better.
  • Add more lime juice for even more tang!
  • Add some avocado for a creamy addition.
