Black Bean and Tomato Salsa

Black Bean and Tomato Salsa

Adding canned beans to a spicy salsa is an easy way to boost fiber and improve nutritional value. This salsa is also a good accompaniment for burgers or scrambled egg burritos.

Prep time: 10 minutes

  • 1 cup seeded, diced plum tomatoes (3-4 tomatoes)
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (or parsley)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced canned chipotle in adobo sauce (see note below)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl; stir to blend. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Note: Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapenos with a fiery taste that are canned in adobo sauce. Look for them in the Hispanic section of large supermarkets and in specialty stores.
