Recipe Week – Day 1 – Corn Salsa

Standard

I have decided that this will be Recipe Week on my blog!!! *cue theme song* 🎢 I will post 7 recipes that I have made recently, whether for the first time or just an old favorite of mine. Most of the time I will have photos, but sometimes my hands are messy and I just can’t get good before and after photos – well, for the “after” photos, sometimes the food is so good it disappears quickly!

For our Monday recipe of Recipe Week, I will be sharing a corn salsa recipe. It is great for summer parties, and although I have made it only once so far, everyone asked for the recipe, it was so tasty! So if you were at that party and are reading this…. Sorry I am giving you the recipe two months later! I need to thank my good friend Hannah for giving me the recipe after she brought it to my Memorial Day cookout. Thanks Hannah!

Ingredients:
1 can drained corn kernels
1 can drained diced tomatos (or one fresh diced tomato)
1 can drained and rinsed black beans
1/2 diced red onion
2-3 tbsps chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp lime juice (or 1/2 a fresh squeezed lime)
2 tsps of cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Throw the vegetable and cilantro in first, stir, the add spices, stir, then lime juice last and stir one more time.

This recipe was so fast and easy, and I barely had to buy anything at the store since I had most of it at home! I love cooking with cumin and cayenne pepper, and my vegetarian chili recipe from my Super Bowl post on the blog uses similar spices. In the corn salsa, I opted for the diced tomatoes and the fresh lime. As for the cilantro, I used fresh but I did not measure it. I just chopped a bunch and threw it in, adding more as needed.

Enjoy, and let me know how you like the corn salsa! πŸŒ½πŸ…
