Salsa can be used for so many purposes - dipping chips, adding to tacos, and even topping salads. While at my friends' house for tacos the other day, I discovered Newman's Own Black Bean & Corn Salsa and I was amazed and delighted at this tasty new find.
The first thing to note is the wholesome ingredients: diced tomatoes, water, black beans, corn, yellow bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, distilled vinegar, salt, spices, chipotle pepper, garlic, and xanthan gum. SImple, easily recognizable ingredients. This salsa adds the spice and corn-bean flavor to whatever you add it to. Check out Karen's Black Bean Salsa Burritos and the Tofu Scramble Breakfast made spicier with this Newman's Own salsa. And the funny "Salute to Paul Newman" for this amazing salsa.
As for nutrition, Newman's Own Black Bean and Corn Salsa provide 20 calories per 2 tablespoon serving, no fat, 140 mg of sodium (6% RDA), 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of sugar, and 1 gram of protein. This is a guilt-free chip, salad, and taco-topper.
A 16 ounce jar costs about $3.99, but it can be found cheaper online (and this is NY price). Is it worth it? You betcha!
