Following is a delicious Salsa Recipe and guest

Once upon a time, I was in the mood for something spicy. And by spicy, I mean salsa. But I wanted spicy, chunky salsa. And I wanted some color.

So I whipped up this recipe. And then there we sat, a delicious bowl of Salsa in front of us, with no chips. How could I forget the chips?!

My partner in crime said… Darn. I wish we had chips.

My response? Give me ten minutes.

And, true to my word, ten minutes later, I had semi-homemade tortilla chips (thank God we had a bag of “authentic” corn tortillas hanging around!). And the rest, as they say, is history! :)

…oh, but did I mention the whole bowl is only 206 calories (and with 42% of your daily FIBER intake?!)

Spicy Corn and Black Bean Salsa

Calories Total: 206 (for the salsa recipe only)

Calories Per Serving: 52 (based on 4 servings)

Prep Time: 2 Minutes

Ingredients for Salsa:
  • 1/2 Cup Corn (Look for Whole Kernal Corn and try to avoid any corn that says “Sweet,””Sweetened,” etc)
  • 2 Tomatoes, diced (or 1 cup Canned Crushed Tomatoes with No Salt Added)
  • 1/2 cup Organic Black Beans (if buying a can, look for no added salt or low sodium)
  • 2 tsp Sriracha Sauce (or 1 tsp for a more mild salsa)

Ingredients for Homemade Tortilla Chips (Just in case!):

  • 8-10 corn tortillas (look for the lowest calorie bag. I’ve found that authentic is actually better in this particular quest!)

Directions for Salsa:

  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well
  2. Serve with chips! 

Directions for Homemade Tortilla Chips (Just in case!):

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Stack Tortillas on top of each other and then cut them, all at once, into 4 triangle pieces for large chips or 8 for small chips.
  3. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until crispy. Make sure to test a chip before you turn the oven off! If they’re not crispy enough, keep them in for another few minutes.

      It is a sauce that is often called “Chicken Sauce” from the chicken on the label. I find it at Walmart.

    A little chopped onion would be good in this, too! Green onion, yellow onion, or red onion, doesn’t matter.
