Make the perfect crowd pleaser in just a matter of minutes with this deliciously flavorful fresh-tasting Black Bean and Corn Salsa with avocados, pineapple, and mango that your family and friends will enjoy on tortilla chips, tacos, salads, grilled chicken, fish, or even steak.I like to make this Black Bean and Corn Salsa ahead of time, but when doing, I always chop up the avocados right before serving and giving an extra squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice for good measure, so they do not get discolored or mushy. I prefer using Hass Avocados in the recipe, but feel free to use the Florida or Dominican Avacado if you like it better or only have access to them at the market.

 

 

 

Which Avacado is better to use in the recipe?

  • In terms of cooking, the fatty Hass avocados usually best and can’t be beaten. The Hass Avacado flesh is usually much easier to mash and whip and has a much richer flavor. For an avocado toast, guacamole, or as healthy fat addition in baked goods, you really may want to use a Hass Avacado
  • The Florida avocado or Dominican Avacado may be superior in just a few cases, such as when slicing for salads. The firmer, lower-fat texture of the flesh holds its shape when you use cubes of it in a salad. If you are adding any olive oil, tree nuts, or other healthy fats, you may be interested in cutting a few calories by using the Florida variety instead of the Hass.

Just look for the freshest healthy local organic produce in the produce section and organic frozen or canned veggies in the freezer section, and canned food isles. The taste of fresh local organic produce is worth a few extra cents if you can budget it. 

 
Now let’s address the Elephant in the room

Produce such as avocados, pineapples, and mangoes are usually not local produce for many folks. Often, they are imports. If you can, get organic. If you can’t don’t worry, the taste will not be hugely different, be sure to wash the skins carefully as not to bruise them and remove excess pesticide residue. You can also use canned pure juice pineapple, that’s what I did in this recipe versus a fresh pineapple. 

 

 

Shopping list:

  1. One-15-ounce can of organic black beans
  2. One-15-ounce can of organic corn or frozen
  3. One-20-ounce can of organic pineapple tidbits, reserve the juice, use 1 cup
  4. One large ripe mango
  5. One Red onion
  6. One pint of organic grape tomatoes, use 1/2
  7. Two jalapeno peppers, seeds, and membranes removed
  8. One bunch of cilantro
  9. Two fresh limes or lemons
  10. Extra Virgin Olive oil
  11. Two Hass avocados
  12. Cumin
  13. Kosher salt
