Bon Appétit

{ Black Bean Salsa }

In honor of Cinco de Mayo and the abundance Spring veggies, I thought I'd share this recipe. I truly believe home made salsa is one of the yummiest things ever--and this is coming from a sweets person, too! This recipe is super easy and always receives rave reviews. In fact I recommend making two batches. One has never been enough for my friends and family!

One can of black beans
1/2 of a medium sized lime
2 large tomatoes
1/2 purple onion
Fresh cilantro
tortilla chips

Chop tomatoes into small pieces. Mince onion. Drain can of black beans. Mix onion, tomatoes and beans in large bowl. Finely chop cilantro (I use the leaves of about 6 stalks)and add to mixture. Squeeze juice of lime over salsa. Serve with tortilla chips. I also like to have fresh sliced avocado to serve as well. The salsa is great on a chip with a slice or two of avocado. Enjoy!
