Black Bean Pico De Gallo

This Black Bean Pico De Gallo is soooo quick and easy, I almost feel bad posting it as a recipe. It's that simple. But that's what makes it so great! You can throw this dish together in minutes and you have a super healthy snack.

Traditional Pico De Gallo is made from tomatoes, no black beans. But I love adding protein and fiber into any recipe, so I added black beans. And they work so well!

Having black beans in the recipe helps you feel fuller. If you choose to eat chips with your pico, you'll be less likely to over-eat your chips since the fiber of the beans will help you feel full. Amazing!

Ingredients

  • Roma Tomatoes: pro tip - use a serrated knife to slice the tomatoes. A serrated knife helps you cut through the skin without squeezing the juice out of the tomato.
  • White Onion: If your onion is very strong, soak it in some water to help remove some of the tang.
  • Garlic: Both fresh and freeze dried garlic work perfectly in this recipe.
  • Jalapeno: For a bit of kick! If you don't like spicy salsa you can decrease the amount of jalapeno you use.
  • Cilantro: For some freshness!
  • Lime: Acid like lime juice helps keep the salsa fresh.
  • Black Beans: You can use canned beans to make this recipe super quick.
  • Spices: cumin, salt & pepper.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
