Tomato Black Bean Salsa

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


4 cups

This fresh-tasting medley bursts with homegrown garden goodness, including tomatoes, red pepper and crunchy corn. "Serve this salsa in the traditional way with baked tortilla chips and veggies—or as a condiment for fish," suggests Chris Schnittka of Charlottesville, Virginia.


  • 3 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Tortilla chips


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 13 ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.

    This recipe has been a favorite since the first time I made it. I can't eat green peppers and I didn't have any jalapenos, so I substituted a regular (tiny) can of chopped green chilies for all of the other peppers. I made a mistake and used a full teaspoon of coriander the first time I made it, and it was delicious. The lime juice makes the whole thing. That surprised me, but it is what it is. My friends love this as much as I do!

    This is a very excellent recipe that can be tweeked to suite your own taste. I left out the jalapenos, used white onion, dried cilantro, and no corriander. I also added a dash of apple cider vinegar along with the lime juice and it took on a wonderful sweet flavor. It takes only minutes to make and is simply delicious!
