Mexican Corn Salsa is a zesty blend of corn, black beans, peppers, chiles & onions sauteed in butter & spices & mixed with a kicky lime crema. Scrumptious! It’s so good by itself or mixed in other dishes.

I sure love making easy recipes that we take out to the picnic table & enjoy while soaking in the beauty of our backyard. When it’s warm I like to keep it simple, light & on the munchy side so I can have a few bites & then not be committed to a full plate of food. This is mostly because I’m typically munching while the hubs is grilling dinner on the BBQ & I’m trying to not ruin my appetite completely. I can’t help it, I probably should just wait for dinner- but snacks like this Mexican Corn Salsa are so good.
This works great as a snack with some chips. But then I like to use the leftovers as a wonderful addition to a pot of white rice with some cheese & crackers added to make a casserole. Then, if there’s any more leftover, we use it in our tacos. I could go on & on with how many recipes I would love to add this to. What’s not to like, corn, black beans, peppers, onions & chilies all seasoned with chili powder, cumin & a zingy lime crema. It really is just so delicious!
I sprinkled some chives on top for that added pop of green. Just look at all those colors in there. It’s so gorgeous! I’m in love with pretty food. It makes me want to dive right in. The kids didn’t want to walk away from it. They LOVED it & didn’t want to walk away in fear one of their siblings would get more than they did. It’s definitely a recipe we will be using time & time again.
