Black Bean Corn Salsa Recipe

Nora Rušev | Savory Nothings

Black Bean Corn Salsa is an easy recipe you can whip up in no time at all. Use it as a side dish for summer BBQs, or as a dip to scoop with chips — it’s everyone’s favorite party food!

In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a huge supporter of turning chips and a dip into a full meal when it’s hot outside.

This year I made my Loaded Vegetarian Nachos for Cinco de Mayo, but I made them on a sheet pan and it was very amazing. Kids loved them, husband loved them, and I spent 5 minutes making them.

They are the best.

I also have a favorite mango and black bean salsa I shared way back when I was still young and a little less tired than I am right now, and we love it as a side dish when we have a nice backyard barbecue or to scoop with chips.

But sometimes my kids are cheeky and pick out the mango pieces from their salsa and refuse to touch anything else.

Which is why I started resorting making a black bean corn salsa instead, and serving the mango as dessert ;)

How to make black bean corn salsa:

Making a chunky/chopped/salad-y salsa is super easy. All you need is a bunch of delicious things, chopped up if necessary, and some dressing/seasoning.

What I put in my salsa:

  • Sweet corn
  • Black beans
  • Chopped red onion
  • Chopped red pepper
  • Chopped green pepper
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Taco seasoning (trust me)
  • Salt
  • Lime juice
  • Olive oil

All you have to do is stir everything together, check the seasoning and serve it.

There’s really nothing more to be said about this recipe, because it’s so so so simple to make. Unless you want me to keep talking? But then you’ll have to give me a minute to get a glass of wine.

Wine or not, we love this as a snack/appetizer thing outdoors during summer with our fave organic tortilla chips. Or on top of some grilled fish.

Or, you know, just straight out of the bowl with a spoon? Yeah, it’s mostly that one.

If I’m turning this black bean corn salsa into a no cook dinner, I’ll also make some guacamole and possibly a cheeseboard to go with the chips and dip.

Honestly, it’s probably one of my all-time favorite things to make for a lazy summer dinner out on the deck. Quick to whip up, the kids eat it… What else could a tired mom ask for?!

Planning a dinner party and need some inspiration?
