corn salsa

Last Sunday was Superbowl Sunday… and a Superbowl spread is not complete without some good chips and dip.  As some of you may know…corn is a staple in our household and we’re not going to watch the big game without one of our favorites.  Our friend Vivian usually makes a corn and bean dip for large get togethers.  You can always count on this addicting dip to be served up in a large bowl with plenty of tortilla chips at poker parties and gatherings.  Sadly, Vivian and her family has moved up to Northern California and we miss them very much! Derrick requested that I recreate Vivian’s dip for the Superbowl.  Here’s my take on a tomato-less corn and black bean salsa.  I added green and red bell peppers for texture and color.  It’s tangy, fresh and tasty!  It’s a nice change to the traditional salsa, guacamole and onion dip.  This corn salsa recipe is so easy, quick and makes enough to serve a crowd.  You can make this in advance so that you can actually relax and watch the game.  This recipe can be halved or doubled if needed and would also be great served with tacos, over grilled chicken or fish.
