From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering
Some people call this ‘Island Caviar’ or ‘Cowboy Caviar’—it’s a speedy recipe for a soup, dip or salad!
With so many of us at home due to coronavirus, I made this salsa into soup and hopefully most of you have similar ingredients in the house at the moment.
The original recipe came from a Tostitos ad in a magazine. I actually do buy Tostitos salsa since my husband liked it at a party. I did alter the recipe considerably since I prefer to ‘dump’ complete containers of beans, corn, salsa etc rather than measuring smaller quantities and having leftover bits.
This salsa has just a nice bite to it, no runny nose and tingling lips—at least that’s what we think with the ingredients we use. We’ve taken this on picnics with tortilla chips, add cooked chicken or shrimp or even mozzarella balls for main course salad.
Gluten-Free Black Bean Salsa Soup
I like to put in cubes of mozzarella or Mexican cheese.
Cubes of avocado.
Cubes of ham or pepperoni type meats.
Cubes of fresh mango or pineapple are amazing.
Add leftover cooked chicken, bbq meats and serve as main course over rice, hot or cold.
Keeps well in fridge for several days.
Can be added to a chili or other cooked dish as an ingredient.
We also like to put gluten free tortilla chips on a flat plate, sprinkle with Mexican cheese or Landolakes and microwave or oven heat until cheese is melted. Top with this salsa, cooked ground beef with cumin and green onion, cooked grilled chicken, fresh cubed tomatoes, cubes of avocado or guacamole, sour cream.
Use your imagination.
Great for special appetizer, snack, easy for a meal if you have a variety of stuff sitting in fridge. Mix it with cooked rice or quinoa. Easily portable for lunch, picnics, beach etc.
Make it more of a taco salad – chopped lettuce on plate, top with black bean salsa, then sour cream, guacamole, shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips. Delicious no need to turn the oven on meal.
Put some in a quesadilla or mix with rice for a burrito.
