High Fiber Black Bean & Corn Chipotle Salsa #Recipe


Salsa Love !!

Fresh red tomatoes with zesty cilantro and red onion .. mmm delish ! Add some corn, lemon juice  and black beans and you have a savory salsa bursting with flavor and fiber. This is a fun summer recipe that can be served on its own, or with tortilla chips.  My whole family loves salsa so I make a fresh batch every week and am always looking for ways to add good stuff to it and change the taste. I usually add some seasonal fruit to it like my Mango Bean Salsa ! I always add fresh herbs and a salt substitute like Mrs Dash. Salsa can be high in sodium, so adding some herbs and salt substitute makes it so flavorful that the need to add salt is lessened. I added a touch of ‘hot spice’ to it by adding some chipolte chile to it.  It gave it the spicy kick that I was looking for ! Chipotle chile is a fully ripened and smoke-dried jalapeño chile. At the end of the growing season, green jalapeños naturally begin to turn red, are picked and smoked in a closed chamber for several days until they dry up and look prune-like. I crushed two chipotle chiles and used them in the salsa. This salsa is one of the ingredients in a tostado I am making with my #SundaySupper team this Sunday. If you want to check out that recipe,visit again on Sunday ! Hope you enjoy my spicy salsa ! I had such fun making it 🙂 ! 

Nutrition Wise :

Tomatoes are high in lycopene which prevents skin damage from ultra-violet (UV) rays and offers protection from skin cancer. It is also high in  Zea-xanthin which helps protect eyes from “age-related macular related macular disease” . Vitamins A, C and K are just another bonus to the popular tomato. Beans contain a powerhouse of nutrients from phytochemicals and fiber  to antioxidants . To read my post on the incredible bean and more ways to use them in your diet, click here
