-- Not Your Typical Salsa --

Chips and salsa are one of the most popular snacks/appetizers. Its a definite crowd pleaser! Instead of the usual tomato salsa, try a corn and black bean variety. I made this over the weekend . It is so easy to make and I LOVE that you can easily put it in a tupperware and take it with you on a picnic or bring along next time you're in charge of bringing an appetizer or dip for a party.

Smoked Black Bean and Corn Salsa

1 can of black beans
1 can of corn
1 can of diced tomatoes
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 sweet spanish onion, diced
1 tablespoon smoked chipotle tabasco (adjust quantity depending on heat level you prefer)
1/4 teaspoon of chili powder
1/8 cup italian dressing

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Allow for it to sit in the fridge for at least 4 hrs to get the best flavor. Serve with tortilla chips.
