Cooking with Kids | 6 Ingredient Corn Bean Salsa |

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

It's football season which means tailgating.  You and I both know what the best part of tailgating is,  the food (I mean the people too of course).  We all bring food to share and I am always looking for an easy, fan-favorite recipe to take along.  This corn bean salsa recipe is always a fan favorite, always.

The recipe came from my friend Emilie.  She is the queen of dips and appetizers.  It is so easy that the kids can help make it and great for anything where you need to take a dish to share.

| Ingredients |

Can of diced tomatoes with green chilis
Can of black beans
Can of whole kernel sweet corn
Lime Juice to taste (we used 1/4 cup) - alt. 2 squeeze limes
Bunch of cilantro
2 ripe avocados, diced

| Prep time |

Under 15 minutes

| Utensils needed | 


1 - Open the cans of black beans and corn, rinse and drain.  Place in a mixing bowl.

2 - Open can of tomatoes (do not drain), dump into the mixing bowl with beans and corn.

3 - Add lime juice (either 2 fresh squeezed limes) or about 1/4 cup lime juice or to your taste.

4 - add fresh cut cilantro, about 1/3 cup loosely packed.  Dry will work as well.

5 - Add diced up avocado and stir gently until mixed well.  Let sit in fridge or on counter to allow the flavors to meld together for best taste.  Best served within a few hours of making.

Serve with tortilla chips, as a topping to your favorite Mexican dishes, or as a side-salad for your next BBQ.
