Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried.
Used different ingredients. I do not use the tinned tomatoes, but instead use 3 additional fresh tomatoes. I also omit the green chillies, but substitute jalapeno peppers (usually 2 or 3 depending on size, no seeds). I also add 4 capfuls of white balsamic vinegar and the juice of 1/2 lime and 1/2 lemon. - 08 Aug 2008
Not really spicy, but has an excellent fresh flavour to it. Note that it makes A LOT of salsa, so I would recommend making it for your next big party. - 08 Aug 2008
I have made a variation of this recipe for years and everyone loves it! The fresh coriander adds a wonderful flavour. - 08 Aug 2008
