I had a small group of friends over for a holiday tea a few months ago. I thought a simple tea would be a great way to get all of us together and catch up. Everyone offered to bring something, and we ended up with a wide variety of snacks and treats.
My friend Babita brought Black Bean Salsa and chips, and it was delicious. This salsa and chips dish is a perfect snack for a summertime get together. Especially when we can find juicy tomatoes and fresh corn at the farmer’s markets. I asked Babita for the recipe, and she said she got it from a web site called Show Me the Curry. Here is the link to the recipe for Black Bean and Corn Salsa. I’ve also included the recipe here.
