This salsa is a staple at my house. I can make it in about 5 minutes, so it's great for quick meals or snacks.


  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Mexican stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained, optional


  1. Drain tomatoes, reserving juice. Cut up tomatoes; place in a large bowl. Add juice, beans, chiles, onion, cilantro, salt and, if desired, olives; stir until combined.
  2. Cover and store in the refrigerator. Serve with tortilla chips or as an accompaniment to Mexican food.
