In honor of Memorial Day weekend, I am sharing one of my favorite easy recipes. I just made it last night, and its popularity hasn't waned since the last time I made it. This is a good recipe to have on hand when someone calls and says, "We're eating out. Come on over and have a hamburger." I almost always have the ingredients on hand. It's yummy.
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can white and yellow (or just yellow) corn, drained and rinsed
1 small green pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 jar (more or less) of salsa
Marinade: 1/4 cup of each: vegetable oil, white vinegar and sugar
Combine the first five ingredients. Mix the marinade and pour over salsa. Note: You might need to experiment with the marinade to taste. Some people feel the sugar makes it too sweet. I like the sweet/hot combination, but feel free to add less or no sugar. Also, I usually don't use a whole jar of salsa. I pour about half in, let the salsa chill in the fridge and then decide if it needs more.
Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos.
