Bean-Salsa final

Check out this simple recipe for Bean Salsa or as some people call it, Cowboy Caviar.  It is probably my favorite salsa. I love how simple it is to make however most people can’t tell that it is made with canned ingredients.  I think the fresh cilantro really gives it a great flavor too!  Serve it with tortilla chips.

I love taking this to a cookout or picnic, there is no worry for refrigeration like other salads.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
