Red Gold Saves Game Day - Fresh Black Bean Corn Salsa & GIVEAWAY

Game Day was upon us and with two kids underfoot, I needed a quick and easy recipe for appetizers.

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 

Ingredients:
  • 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
Instructions
  • 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!
