3-Can Salsa

Salsa by presenter & social media dietitian – Amanda D. Nutrition!


  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and chilies*

Optional Ingredients:**

  • ½ lime juiced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Serve with tortilla chips or on top of meat***


  1. Open all cans, drain and rinse.
  2. Dump into large bowl.
  3. Mix and serve with tortilla chips.
  4. Optional: This salsa goes great over chicken and fish.
  5. Reminder: Because it has both a grain (corn) and a legume (black beans), along with a vegetable (tomatoes); this can actually be a meal itself!

* If you do not have a can of tomato and chilies, try a can of diced tomatoes or fresh tomatoes and a teaspoon of hot sauce.
** It will cost more if you use a lime, cilantro, cumin, or meat.
***If you can get other ingredients through the Farmers Market Nutrition Program, try peppers and onions.
