Black Bean Salsa

Black Bean Salsa

Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans? I am determined to feel better today. I still haven’t eaten all week, well dry toast, cereal, a little soup, but I want real food today! I miss my kitchen. I really hope I can cook, bake, and workout this weekend. Thanks again for caring about little ol’ me!
I am a sweets gal all the way, I usually don’t crave salty foods. I do have a little crush on chips and salsa though. Of course it has to be the good stuff. I love fresh salsa with salty chips. Josh makes a killer mango salsa that I love and fresh pico is always good, but this time I made a black bean salsa.

I love black beans, since I don’t eat meat they are one of my main sources of protein, so why not add them into my salsa? I love the heartiness it added. I also threw in red and yellow bell peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, lime, garlic, onion, and jalapeno. The salsa was very colorful and very tasty! This is a great appetizer for Spring/Summer parties or a healthy snack to munch on. I also enjoyed the salsa on a salad. It is good in so many ways! Enjoy!

**I recently did a photo shoot with Quinn Curtis, from Limelight Food Photography. She is a fabulous food photographer here in Utah. She was in the mood to take pictures and I was in the mood to cook/bake, so we teamed up for a fun photo shoot. It was loads of fun. I will be sharing some of her photos on our blog. She is darling! Check out her site here! Thanks Quinn!**

    Never had black beans until I moved to Florida and I loved them ever since!
