My wife and I cobbled together this recipe a couple of years ago, and we've been making AND EATING it ever since. It is even fairly healthy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk oil, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add bell red and green peppers and both types of onions, and toss well.
  3. Add beans, and toss again.
  4. Cover, and refrigerate several hours or overnight, mixing occasionally.
  5. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary; extra salt and black pepper do wonders, even though Glenda gets upset if I add too much salt.
  6. Toss well before serving, or drain if desired (only if you are a real wimp!) This recipe should be doubled or tripled!
  7. It keeps a long time in the refrigerator, and it tastes great!
  8. Actually, the longer it sets, the better it tastes, so make it in advance if you can.

Hey! This was really good! I've always wanted to try a bean salsa before, and this was a perfect one to start with; being that it was good and didn't turn me off to they on the first try. I liked it because it was very easy, and had a very fresh limey flavor (which I just love it dishes), and it went great with those "Hint Of Lime Corn Chips". I also think this would be good with grilled fish. In fact, I might just make it again to have it with some grilled fish, lol :). Well, thank you for this excellent recipe! I hope you keep up the good work.
