Black bean and spicy corn salsa

You are watching: Black bean and spicy corn salsa


Few types of salsa are as healthy as black bean and corn salsa. It certainly makes a great potato dip and an even better burrito or quesadilla. But it is useful enough to use as a side dish to Mexican dishes. Try mixing it with eggs for scrambled eggs or a spicy omelet.

Spice up this recipe by choosing serrano peppers over jalapenos. Serranos have twice the heat of jalapenos (10,000 to 23,000 Scoville heat units versus 2,500 to 8,000 SHU), so you’ll stand out. There are also many other hot varieties, the taste is similar. So you still get the bright grass texture that goes well with the corn and black beans.

  • Cherry: It has a very delicious sweet and sour taste. And it comes along with the jalapenos.
  • Jalapeño Mango: Tropical Sweetness! This is a great fish taco topper.
  • Spicy Blueberries: Blueberries provide fertile soil. Matches savory tortillas.
