Bean Salsa

I am forever trying to come up with a good side dish when I serve Mexican style food.  What do you serve?  Chips?  A vegetable?  For some reason, I just struggle with this one.

A while back, I made a rice and bean dish that we really enjoyed.  I was planning to make it again when I made Chicken Tortilla Soup recently, but I forgot to start the rice in time, so I ended up making a bean salsa instead.  I loved the heat of the chili powder and cayenne combined with the sweetness of the corn – it was hard to stop eating this!  Even my little 1 year old loved this salsa!

Bean Salsa

1 can of seasoned pinto beans, drained
1 can of corn, drained
1 can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 small avocado, diced
2 green onions, sliced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp lime juice
1 ½ tsp chili power
½ tsp cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
½ tsp salt

Stir all ingredients together.  Let set at least 30 minutes.  Serve with or without tortilla chips.



  1. Looks yummy! :) Bean salsa is so much more substantial, and yours is very colorful, too!

  2. Oh wow, this looks absolutely delicious. I am a big fan of bean salsas and I love the addition of avocado in this. I would have a hard time stopping eating too!

  3. I have a recipe very similar to this one that I make a lot. It's delicious! You just can't go wrong with those ingredients. Mmmmm..

  4. I love happy accidents like that! The perfect party dip IMO!


Please comment! I would love to hear from you!
