Red Gold, a family owned company since 1942, whose mission is to "produce the freshest, best-tasting tomato products in the world” had just sent me some of their products to try out, so I figured I'd give them a whirl.
|Getting all my ingredients in order.....|
Taking a look in my pantry and fridge, I found some black beans, canned corn, green chiles, cilantro, green onion and Red Gold Diced Tomatoes - Chili Ready with Onions.
I'm thinking, some kind of black bean and corn salsa? Easy as pie...or salsa (ahem).
I found a recipe on the back of the 100% Natural, Red Gold Diced Tomatoes for a similar sort of salsa / dip. For the life of me, I can't find the recipe online and I threw away (wait, let me toot my own horn...recycled) the can so I don't have the exact recipe - but will try to give you the basics.
Red Gold Fresh Black Bean Corn Salsa
- 1 can (14.5oz) Red Gold Diced Tomatoes - Chili Ready w/ Onions
- 1 can corn (drained)
- 1 can (15oz) black beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1 can green chiles (4.5oz)
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
- salt & pepper to taste
- MIX IT UP!
No, but seriously, it was that easy. Taste it after mixing all the ingredients together because I can't remember if I added a Tbsp. of red wine vinegar. I think I might have. Oops.
If any of you can find the recipe on the back of the can, send it my way so I can put up accurate ingredients.
|Once you taste it, you just can't stop eating it!|
I had a friend visiting from out of town when I made this dip / salsa and she snacked on the leftovers for days. I even made my daughter a quesadilla with the bean salsa inside the next day and she loved it!
There's nothing I love better than a quick and easy recipe, that packs a punch of flavor and keeps you coming back for more!
