Black Bean Salsa

I haven't tried this one yet, as it uses dried beans and I typically buy my black beans in the can (quick and easy!). I made one similar using canned beans that I thought was pretty good, but it used prepared salsa in place of the tomatoes and chilies. I am anxious to try this one because I think it will have a fresher flavor.

Black Bean Salsa

1 pound dry black beans, soaked and cooked about one hour until just tender*
1 - 11 oz can white corn, drained
2 - 10 oz cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
2 tomatoes, diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
Juice of one lime
salt to taste if using dry beans

Mix it all up. Chill overnight. Garnish with additional cilantro if desired. Serve with chips or use in burritos.
