!Fresh Salsa

  • 8-9 ripe roma tomatoes
  • 2 jalapenos some (or all) seeds removed
  • 1 small white or red onion
  • 1-2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1-2 limes
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 14- ounce can corn drained
  • 1 14- ounce can black beans drained and rinsed


  • Remove seeds and pulp from the tomatoes and cut into quarters. Remove seeds from the jalapenos (if desired) and chop. Roughly chop the onions and cilantro.
  • Place first tomatoes, jalapenos, onions and cilantro into a food processor. Pulse several times until the vegetables finely chopped and combined. If you prefer a chunkier salsa, you can forego the food processor and chop all the ingredients to your desired size.
  • Place the chopped ingredients into a small bowl and stir in juice from 1 lime. Add a couple pinches of salt. Taste and add more lime and salt as desired.
  • To make the Corn & Black Bean Salsa, stir in the corn and black beans and add more lime and salt to taste.
  • Serve with tortilla chips, on tacos, or over baked chicken or white fish.
