Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans and Cilantro

Last Updated on June 24, 2019 by Ellen Christian

Yesterday, I seriously considered feeding everyone cereal for dinner – that’s how hot and humid it was. I really don’t like turning on the oven when it’s this hot. We have a small home with no air conditioning and adding the heat of the oven to the already oppressive heat wasn’t going to happen. Of course, it’s doubtful my husband or teenagers would have been overly impressed with cold cereal for dinner so I had to get creative with this Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans.

Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans

I know what you’re thinking. There’s no protein in there. It’s important to me to have some form of protein in each meal. While my family definitely eats meat, there are some meatless meals that we enjoy as well. When we choose a meatless meal, we make sure to form a complete protein.  Because this Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans has both corn and beans, it forms a complete protein on its own. And, it’s so much better than a canned corn salsa! It’s also a great corn salsa for tacos if you want to use it as a topping.

Cans help waste less food, saving us time and money, and reducing our impact on the environment. Did you know that Americans throw away approximately 15 percent to 20 percent of the fresh fruits and vegetables they purchase every year? Canned food portion sizes are just right for both individuals and families, and most recipes are designed around these sizes.

Metal cans are endlessly recyclable and, in fact, are the most recycled containers in America today, keeping metal out of landfills and saving significant energy. Learn more about canned foods.
