A recipe for Spring!

Tis the season to start making lighter foods and this is one of my favorites!!!

Amy’s Salsa

1 can black beans- drained, rinsed
1 can shoepeg corn- drained
1 small can chopped black olives
1 medium avocado- diced (sometimes I put 2 in my salsa)
1 medium tomato- diced
1 bunch cilantro
Garlic powder
2 limes
1 jar jalapenos

Combine beans, corn, black olives, avocado & tomato.

Chop about ½ of the cilantro. (if you really like me..use the whole bunch)
Add to mixture

Chop 5-10 slices of the jalapenos (adjust for heat) Add to mixture

Sprinkle garlic powder over entire mixture, covering well.

Squeeze the juice from both limes over mixture.

Drizzle 1-2 tsp of juice from the jarred jalapenos (adjust for heat)

Stir well. You can eat immediately, but better if allowed to chill for at least 30 minutes.
Serve with tortilla chips or over grilled chicken or fish!! Yum!
