Easy Last Minute Salsa and Bean Dip

My schedule has been so crazy lately that I had not noticed nor given thought to the "Big Game" (which we all know as SuperBowl but since the NFL is suing anyone who calls it that but them, we'll have to bow to the stupidity and call it the 'big game'). Personally I don't care about football games and I don't watch. However, my family loves the part I play in the whole big day as it's a day for "Football Food". This of course means... finger foods. Appetizers. Foods they can 'graze' on.

With that in mind, let's throw a few 'no brainer' recipes out there. Things you probably don't need a recipe for but perhaps just a reminder that they exist and you'll read it and say "Oh yeah! I forgot about that. I need to make one of those!" Remember; play with your food. Recipes are guides... but add and delete to your own tastes. In our family I'd add some black olives and chopped jalapeno's to this cold bean and salsa dip. I'd also try adding a can of refried beans and some cream cheese and heating it in a crock pot. Add. Delete. Have fun!

Salsa and Bean Dip

1 can black beans (drained)
1 can red (not kidney beans) beans (drained)
1 can white shoe-peg corn (drained)
