30-Before-30: Make Salsa from Scratch

Another cooking-related task from my 30 things, it's salsa season at our casa. I made Black Bean Salsa and it turned out wonderfully, very refreshing and great on chips and tortillas.
Black Bean Salsa
Adapted from Life's Ambrosia.


1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 red onion, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced
2 jalapeƱos, seeded and minced
juice from one lime
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.


Matt got in on the salsa fun too. He used a recipe from Tasty Kitchen after we went to the Frisco Farmers Market a few weeks ago. His salsa was pretty tasty and made a ton, next time it needs a few more jalapeƱos though!
