Black Bean Salsa

Yield 16 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)
I created this recipe for my wife. I used to make summer wraps and top them with feta. My wife suggested adding salsa, so I tried a few, and this one stuck. I make this all summer long and serve it with hot tortilla chips. It's a wonderful break from the same old salsa out of a jar, and we love the texture and spicy flavor.

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
