Black Bean Salsa is an easy and tasty appetizer to make for your family or gathering.
It’s so easy, and the ingredients are common enough to be in everyone’s pantry.
I have to add here, that I just LOVE black beans. It was only a few years ago, that I had even tried them. I mean, as a girl, I had never even heard of them! Apparently, they started to become popular in the US grocery market in the late 1980’s. Like other legumes, they are high in fiber and protein and have many other health benefits to them. See information on that HERE.
Eat Beans. They are Good for You!

Tips on Making This Recipe
Mince your onion and dice the green pepper. Add to beans.
