Learn how to make black bean and corn salsa tacos with this easy recipe! Made with homemade salsa and can be topped with avocado, cilantro-lime rice, and more!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups black beans
  • 1 (14.5oz) can fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cups corn
  • 1 sweet pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 poblano pepper, diced
  • 1 cup salsa (how to make homemade salsa)
  • 2 chipotle peppers (from a can), diced
  • 4 oz can diced green chiles
  • 2 Tbsp chipotle pepper sauce (from a can)
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 hatch chile pepper, diced (optional, when in season)
  • 13 cups water, as needed

For serving:

Toppings as desired:

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients, except the water, to a medium pot. (If you’re doubling the recipe, use a large 5-6 quart Dutch oven).
  2. Add enough water JUST to be able to see a water line, but not above the vegetables. (The water assists in cooking down the vegetables, but you don’t want this to be soupy).
  3. Bring to a simmer and let it cook for 20-30 minutes, adding water as necessary.
  4. Serve warm with desired toppings and enjoy!

Notes

  • Cook the beans ahead of time. I cook two pounds of black beans at a time in my 8-quart Instant Pot. I do this before bed and they’re ready for me in the morning. Then I portion 1 ½ cups into freezer-safe bags and freeze them for later. This makes cooking bean recipes SUPER easy.
  • Use leftover salsa. We often have leftover salsa in the fridge and I use whatever flavor we have in this salsa.
  • Make a double batch. Seriously, once you know your family loves this black bean corn salsa as much as we do, make a double batch. Freeze 4 cups of the finished salsa in a quart-size freezer-safe bag. Label and freeze flat. Then when you need a fast dinner later, pull this bag out to thaw and heat up some tortillas. DONE!
