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.
If you cook your corn for this recipe instead of using frozen, check out my tips for removing corn silk easily from corn every time.
Fresh cilantro also adds a bit of spice herb to this delicious dish.
