This was so good and so easy to make! I used jarred salsa rather than fresh, and added some fresh spinach for some extra veggies. While this was great on a baked potato, I thought it was even better on a sweet potato.
Black Bean and Corn-Topped Potatoes
You can also enjoy this bountiful Southwestern-style topping with baked tortilla chips instead of potatoes. When corn is in season, substitute fresh sweet corn kernels for frozen.
