Spicy Corn and Bean Relish

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by chris and her whisk

Colorful, tasty and easy. This versatile dish can be a side dish, a nice filling for tacos, topping for quesadillas, even a salsa to serve with chips. I use it to dress up a dinner of tacos or quesadillas made from left overs.

I served these with Karen from Colorado's Recipe #14899. The relish was tasty (though the flavor of the "margarita" didn't really come through) and provided a nice complement to the spicy quiche.
