Tastes like i put so much effort into it. sooooo good. Thank you so much for posting.
This was almost just too easy! The black bean really jazz up the regular ol' salsa. I served it with Cheese Spinach Quesadillas for a nice and light dinner. I will be making this again! Made for Zaar Stars
Silly easy is right but OH SO GOOD! I made this for my DS's surprise birthday party tonight (shhh don't tell him yet) and had to sample my food before serving. Oh this is heavenly. I love black beans and have mixed them in with other things but have never thought to do this! It just makes the salsa oh so very special! Thanks for sharing this Zaar Star!!! *****
Made for ZWT5, Groovy Gastronomes. Photos are in Cooking Photos Forum (http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?p=4540988#4540988). As Brooke said, it doesn't get much easier or thriftier ... and yes, tastes wonderful. I made two versions, one with commercial salsa (Newman's Own) and one with a ZWT5 salsa recipe. Most commercial salsas are cooked as part of the bottling process, so the salsa chunks are a bit soft, compared to the raw ingredient salsas (a grilled vegetable salsa would be intermediate in texture). By using different salsas or by adding chile peppers, you can alter the texture and the heat of this recipe any way you like. I pureed about 1/3 of the drained black beans to provide some adhesion without adding a lot of liquid. Great recipe, Brooke, thanks for posting!
You're right... why didn't I think of this great dip. Served tonight to company, they loved it and wondered why BakinBaby didn't think of it too!!! Go figure, made for stars... so glad I did, thanks Brooke.Another brooke star.
I love chips and salsa, but the black beans really added some "yum". I used a potatoe masher to mash half of the beans, and then used "hot" pace picante sauce. I never would have thought of it on my own, so thanks for posting :)
Brooke ~ Why didn't I think of that?!! : ) This is such a great, simple low-cal snack! I used my avocado masher and mashed up half the black beans before adding them to the Pace Pico de Gallo that I used. Terrific! Thanks so much : )
The black beans add real depth to this recipe. Loved it. I smashed 1/2 of the black beans as suggested. Thanks Made for Zaar Stars UPDATE: The serving sizes for my family is 2. I watched my DH and SIL inhale this salsa in a matter of 20 minutes. Puff-gone..... :)
This was easy & tasty...Next time I think I will use spicy salsa. Made for 123 HITS
Excellent idea, I added the black beans whole but next time I will mash half and leave half. This was an great idea for me to use up a jar of extra spicy salsa that was a bit to hot for us. I think that the salsa and the black beans is a good combination of flavors. Thanks for sharing this idea.
