Yummy Bean Salsa

We don't eat a lot of meat, so we really enjoy this salsa with lots of beans for protein. It is best if you can leave it overnight so there is a good marriage of the flavors. You can add your favorite beans and adjust the quantity of corn or amount or type of bell peppers.

1 1/2 C black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 C white beans, rinsed and drained
1 C corn kernels (frozen or canned)
1/3 C chopped green pepper
1 4oz can of green chilies
1/3 C chopped onion
1 14.5 oz can of petite diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 C Italian salad dressing
1/2 tsp garlic salt
I like to add a few chopped green onions too

Mix all together; cover and refrigerate overnight. Before serving you may need to drain off some excess liquid. Also good with chopped cilantro- (but add just before serving). Serve with tortilla chips.

  1. I love this recipe - mine has slight differences, but the over flavor would be very similar. I might have to make it tomorrow!
