Tex-Mex Black Bean Salsa

Tex-Mex Black Bean Salsa

Kids dig salsa, and this no-cook recipe lest them make it themselves. It's great with dipping chips, and can be assembled quickly. While the kids are busy making the all-important salsa, grown-ups can prep what goes with it.


  • 2 medium-size Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 medium-size red onion
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 (15-1/2-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (we used Old El Paso)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt


  1. Prep the tomatoes and onions as instructed in Steps 1 and 2 of our Orange-Kissed Tomato Salsa recipe, then transfer the ingredients to a large bowl. Finely chop the scallions and add them to the bowl, along with the beans.
  2. Sprinkle on the taco seasoning and lightly toss the mixture until evenly blended. Spoon in the sour cream or yogurt and toss again until the ingredients are fully coated. Makes 3 cups.
