Corn and Black Bean Salsa
Have you ever craved some Latin-Mexican food and want to whip up something quick and easy? Well, if you do then I know exactly how you feel..trust me. We are always craving some type of Latin-Mexican food at our house which is usually every week or so. Our cravings are either pasta for one week and moving on to Latin food another week. Sometimes, we tend to go all out with our Mexican cravings with a side of margarita. For us lately, it’s been making a chicken fiesta bowl (like Chipotle’s but even better) and nachos. I would love to do a blog on these two dishes soon! But, you will have to follow this blog to get notification when the recipe is posted.
I love to add my Creole seasonings and smother down my food a little bit when I make any type of Latin food. It’s just how Creole’s cook! One of the reasons why I like Latin- Mexican food so much is because the food is cooked similar to Creole food. The spices and the variety of sauces are the core ingredients of preparing Latin and Mexican cuisines and the same for Creole cuisine as well. Love it, love it!
I recently created my own version of corn and black bean salsa. Ya’ll, this is more than just an appetizer because it can just as well become a side dish. It can be a topping for tacos and nachos. The corn and black bean salsa is not spicy but the flavors stands out. Trust me, it’s AMAZING!
I usually try to cook with ingredients that I may already have in my pantry and freezer. So, more than likely you have these items too in your pantry, cabinet and freezer which makes this dish so easy peasy. All you need for the main ingredients is frozen corn and a can of black beans. The rest of the ingredients are spices to create the flavor for your corn and black bean salsa. Feel free to substitute the half & half with regular milk. Adding a garnishment of chopped cilantro enhances the flavor of your salsa, but the cilantro is just optional. It is delicious as a dip with tortilla chips, tacos, nachos or as a side dish.
