My family was invited to a "Back to School" party over the weekend and we were asked to bring chips. Even though my husband suggested picking up a bag of chips at the supermarket, I just couldn't bring myself to show up at a party with a bag of Doritos. Don't get me wrong - I love Doritos but I didn't want that to be my contribution to the party. I don't know if it was the lack of creativity or the lack of thought that is involved in purchasing a bag of chips but I just couldn't do it. I ended up buying a bag of tortilla chips and making a chunky salsa to go along with it.
I have seen quite a few versions of this recipe. It is especially popular in the south for some reason. I call mine Black and White salsa because I usually use white shoepeg corn and black beans.
Black and White Salsa
15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
Juice of 2 limes
10 ounces frozen white corn (I used yellow this time because I was out of white corn.)
1 jalapeno, thinly diced and ribs removed
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 red tomato, diced
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
I love avocado and I think it makes just about everything taste better so I added avocado to my portion of the salsa. (Pictured at the top of the blog.) Unfortunately not everyone shares my love of this creamy vegetable so I left it out of the salsa that I was taking to the party. It was a big hit.
