Spicy Bean and Corn Salsa Side

Recipe by  

"Our whole family loves this quick and easy side dish. I serve it with tacos, sloppy joes, or picnic meals... Great for potlucks because you serve it cold. Easily adjusted to your individual taste by using your favorite salsa. I often double this for church potlucks or company - it makes a lot to serve as a side and stretch a meal. I usually skip the onions and peppers when making it for guests. I rated this myself for ease and because it is a go-to recipe in my house."

I loved this recipe. How can you go wrong with black beans? I used green onions and red bell peppers instead of green cause I like the sweetness of them. Other then those I would not change a thing. Thanks Cindylee

The first recipe on this site that came out terrible. Flavors were all wrong.

It's good. But as a side for a hot dish, I think it's too cold. Next time I'd probably take it out and let it sit for awhile before serving with my main dish.

Mmmmmmmm!!! I did NOT use salsa, instead I made my pico de gallo: Diced Tomatos, Diced Red Onion, Garlic, Cilantro, olive oil mixed with this recipe, put in a sealed container, shook, and put in fridge for an hour.

I agree with a previous reviewer in that I think this is better served room temperature. I used peach salsa and fresh frozen corn and no bell pepper (not a fan). I added some fresh cilantro. This is a good side dish! Thanks.

This is also great if you add a tablespoon of cumin and chopped celery and a bit of cilantro.

This was so easy and good. If you like cilantro add it, I think it made it so much better
