Corn and Bean Salsa

My family loves salsa and I especially love corn and bean salsa. This salsa is so delicious considering how easy it is to make.
 You can easily adapt the ingredients in this recipe to what you have on hand or to taste. I'm sure frozen corn could be used and I want to try fresh corn next year. Why didn't I think of that when it was in season??
 This keeps well for several days and I think it gets better after the flavors have blended a day or two.
It's very addictive!!!

Corn and Bean Salsa 
Drain and Rinse:
1 can white corn
1 can yellow corn
1 can black beans
1 can blackeyed peas
Dice:1 green pepper
1/2 of a red onion
1 jalapeno or hot pepper finely chopped
Mix together:
1/2 cup sugar (I use a little less)
1/4 cup dried cilantro (I use parsley)
3 Tbsp hot sauce or to taste. (I like Franks Red Hot)
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup oil
salt and pepper to taste.
Make this sweet or hot to your own liking.
Pour this over the rest of the ingredients. I think this is best if you let the flavors blend overnight.


  1. I could certainly be addicted to this... Sounds fabulous, Pearl..... Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Gorgeous shot, Pearl! Corn is in absolutely everything here!! (even the ditches of the roads!)
    Yours looks so beautiful..
