Black Bean Salsa

This recipe is another one courtesy of a Minnesotan family member: my aunt Leanne. She gave me this recipe almost two years ago. I failed to achieve deliciousness my first time out, but over Labor Day I gave it another try. I think the problem was that I couldn't find the shoepeg corn* that the recipe required, but this time I just used raw sweet white corn cut directly from two cobs. Do not use canned yellow corn!

2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can shoepeg corn * (see above)
2 tomatoes, diced
1 red onion, chopped
2 avocados, diced
3-4 T lime juice
2 T olive oil
1 T red wine vinegar
salt & pepper, to taste
garlic, to taste

Prepare all the ingredients as specified. Add the avocado last. I made this a few hours in advance of a party, and added the avocado + a little more lime juice just before leaving. The avocados actually kept within the dip for another day (refrigerated) or so. Very addicting and filling.

I have a similar recipe from my boyfriend's mom in georgia. I was skeptical, this list of ingredients sounds marginal at best...but it's freakin' delicious :)

1 can black beans
1 can black eyed peas
1can yellow corn
1 chopped red onion
1 chopped bell pepper (red or green)
1 pkg. italian dressing mix, prepared

mix it all up and scoop it up with tortilla chips. those lime tostidos are especially good with it for some reason.
