When you’re trying to eat a healthy diet, figuring out exciting lunches can be a challenge. And if you are trying to pack a healthy lunch to take to school or work, it can be even more of a challenge.
This yummy Black Bean Salsa is delicious, good for you, and super easy to put together. Pack it up “to go” with some blue corn chips, some fruit and a Peanut Butter Honey Bar, and you’ve got a great lunch that’s easy to take anywhere.
Black Bean Salsa
1 cup dried black beans
5 tomatoes, diced
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 cup frozen corn, steamed and cooled
¼ cup chopped cilantro
Soak beans in water overnight. Drain and cover with fresh water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 45 minutes. Drain.
In large bowl, mix together beans, tomatoes, onion, corn and cilantro. Stir together. Store in refrigerator. Serve with corn chips or baked tortilla chips.
Make this salsa even easier by using canned black beans and canned corn…then all you have to do is quickly throw all the ingredients into a bowl and stir!
Mmmmm…I LOVE this stuff!
