Chili Bean Corn Salsa

A coworker brought this salsa in to work last week and I was hooked after one bite.  She gave me the recipe and I thought I would share it today, as picnic and potluck season is fast approaching.  You can throw this salsa together in less than 10 minutes.  I made a batch this week and my husband ate all of it in less than two sittings.  I like to add diced mango to my half.  But the basic recipe is below.  Enjoy!

Corn and Black Bean Salsa

I had a few ears of fresh corn left this weekend and decided to make a batch of corn and black bean salsa.  I love corn in my salsa, so this worked out great.  I also love some sort of fruit.  I wanted to use fresh peaches, but I have not been out to get my peaches yet this summer.  So I pulled out a can of pineapple rings and pan grilled them to add.  The results were awesome!  I doctored it up a little on the hot side, but you can add as much or as little heat as you want.  Of course, I was out of gloves to cut my peppers, so I had to don a plastic bag.  It did the job.  Enjoy!
