Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Jump to recipe

Of my favorite things to make when I am feeding a crowd of people is this black bean salad. It’s super easy, you can make it ahead of time (the longer it sits in the fridge the better it tastes) and goes well with so many things! I love serving this salad with grilled chicken but I also make it for burrito bowls (Chipotle style), hamburgers, fajitas, it is so, so good.

You can modify this recipe depending on the people you’re feeding. This time I made it mild because my guests are not very big into spicy food so I went with bell pepper, but you can use jalapeños or even serrano peppers if you want a good kick. You can make it extra fancy using grilled corn instead of frozen, you can add chunks of avocado. Oh, the possibilities!

The colors are so festive, they scream summer! This salad is crispy, fresh and so delicious! Give it a try!

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
