Black bean Salsa with Corn and Tomatoes

We have tacos and burritos a lot at my house.   Most of the time, we use traditional toppings and sides. This black bean salsa is a nice change from the regular bottled salsa and is much more hearty.

I also love to make my own salsa. There are dozens of ways to put together this popular party appetizer without resorting to the normal spicy tomato pasta.  

For this dish, I chose red onion, garlic, fresh limes, tomatoes, sweet peppers, jalapeño peppers, black beans and corn.  Fresh cilantro adds a bit of spice to this delicious dish.
