Jan’s Yummy Black Bean Salsa can Rotel tomatoes, original, drained

1 can green chilies

2 cloves crushed garlic

1 can Black Beans (Bush) rinsed and drained

1 cup whole kernel corn

green onions/or red onions are good, too

1 teaspoon chili powder

red pepper flakes, a few shakes

1/2 tsp. cumin

dash of salt

juice of a lemon

juice of a lime

Mix all and marinade.  Adjust seasonings to taste

It’s colorful, it’s so yummy and so healthy.  You can add a tablespoon of olive oil if you don’t worry about the calories.  Good with pita chips, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes or carrot and celery sticks for dipping…  Baked Doritoes work, too… Calories add up really fast with Doritoes, tho… 

You can bake your own corn tortillas in the oven for this, spray with Pam, sprinkle with salt and bake.  Add garlic salt or cumin or chili powder if you want flavor.  I’ve browned tortillas in the toaster, but it works better baking them on the oven rack.  Set the oven at 375-400, watch closely and flip with tongs, they brown really quickly, just 5 minutes or less…

You can add avocado to this, also cherry tomatoes and cilantro, I detest cilantro, so I leave it out…
