About this recipe: A wonderful Mexican-inspired salsa, full of black beans, sweetcorn, tomatoes and onion. I can never make enough when I have a party. Chill 24 hours before serving if you have time and serve with tortilla crisps.
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
