This is great as a condiment for dipping Nacho Chips or as a salad. It's a great Summertime Treat when the tomatoes are on the vine.

How to Make Jose's Black Bean Salsa

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain and rinse well the Black Beans and Corn.
  2. Dice the Tomatoes,Onion, Celery and Green Pepper. Fine dice the size of corn kernel. Add to Beans and Corn and mix well.
  3. Add Lime Juice and finely chopped Cilantro, and again mix well. I use very little salt for this recipe.
  4. Place in pint jars and refrigerate. Improves after 4 or 5 days in fridge. The "Heat" will also intensify with age. Will keep for week or two in fridge. A Great Summertime Treat. Or Anytime.
  5. As with all my "Hot" dishes, Chili, etc. I prepare them so a 5 year old can eat them. When ready to serve I heat it up just as hot as the crew dares, desires or can stand. I myself at times like it "Hot" and at other times like it with just a "Hint of Heat".
  6. Note: I make my own Hot Pepper powder by drying and then grinding to powder in the Coffee Grinder, 7 or 8 different varieties of hot peppers or chilies, or as many as I can grow or find. It makes for an "Inferno" of heat, I share with friends. I often cut with 50% to 70% Paprika to tame it down. So that my coffee doesn't blister me the next morning I purge the coffee grinder with salt or sugar and it is ready for coffee again.
  7. Hint: After years of buying fresh Cilantro and having much of it spoil and turn black in the fridge, I now mince fine and loosely put it into quart Zip Lock bags and freeze. Keeps perfectly and when I want Cilantro I have it.
