TASTEFUL THURSDAY: Black Bean Salsa
When I was a preteen, tortilla chips and salsa were my go-to after-school snack (unless my mom made cookies!). Reflecting on these genuine food loves has led me to create recipes as I used to love. This salsa, really flavourful and perfect with any crunchy, salty chip, has a wide flavour profile and is incredibly versatile!
Black Bean Salsa
(Here’s enough for 1 serving! Can easily be multiplied.)
1/4 c black beans
1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/8 jalapeño pepper, finely diced
1/4 tsp minced onion
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp basil
1 tsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 T red wine vinegar
1. In small bowl, combine beans, peppers, and onion.
2. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients with whisk. Pour liquid into bean mixture and stir to combine.
3. Serve with tortilla chips (pictured above are beet/corn chips).
