Roasted Corn and Black Bean Salsa

In my last post, I acknowledged some of my favorite recipes I enjoy during the summer. This post is a great complement to the guacamole recipe.

I’m beyond pico de gallo. For as pleasing as it is, I want to give other fruits and vegetables a chance to pair with chips and salsa. For example my strawberry salsa is a great alternative. There is nothing new about this salsa, I’ve known about it for a while and I’m certain other folks have used it before. I would like to contribute this easy addition to the rest of the summer snacks.

If you have a grill, sadly I don’t :(, I recommend grilling it. The alternative is to broil it at a high temperature in your oven as I did.

Total time to prepare: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

– 1 5×6 Tomato, medium dice

– 1 15 Oz can Black beans, drained and rinsed off

-2 Each ears of corn, husked, broiled (see below)

-1 small bunch Cilantro, chopped

-1/2 Yellow onion, medium diced

-1 Each lime

-1 Tablespoon Cumin

-1/2 Teaspoon Chili powder

-TT Salt and pepper

Method of Prep:

-Heat Oven to 425 degrees on the broil setting. Give at least 10 minutes to get hot.

– Begin my husking corn and removing all the string from it. Rub corn with a tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

-Place corn in oven on a sheet tray and rotate every 3 minutes until a carmelized look appears on the corn. (Corn will start to look burnt, that’s when you know to rotate)

-Remove corn from oven and let cool.

-While corn is cooling down, mix in a large bowl the diced tomato, onion, and washed black beans.

-Zest the lime over mix. Cut the lime and squeeze all the juice over salsa.

-Add in cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Cut corn off the cob. Add corn to the bowl and stir.

-Finish with mixing in the cilantro. Taste and season more if needed.

Enjoy!
