homemade corn & black bean salsa

I love chips and salsa. Homemade salsa, preferably- that jar stuff just doesn’t match up. But there is so much prep work to homemade salsa {and I have no portion control with this combo} that I usually reserve it for restaurants or parties {such a party staple}.

But last week I found myself just 2 ingredients short of a great black bean and corn salsa that I knew I had to make it happen. So here it is!

{Don’t judge my inconsistent knife skills. This salsa has character.}

Corn & Black Bean Salsa*

1 can of whole corn kernels, drained and rinsed
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced finely
1 handful of cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
salt & pepper to taste
*Proportions are relative. Do what feels right!

After prepping each ingredient, mix all and season to your taste. Let sit for 10-15 minutes for flavors to combine.
