Mixed Bean Salsa

1 (16 oz.) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1/2 can (16 oz.) pinto beans
2 tomatoes (chopped and seeded)
4 onions (sliced)
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
2 tsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain excess liquid right before serving and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Super Bowl weekend is vastly approaching and now is the time for finger food ideas. You’re either hosting the party or going to it and either way something must be brought to the table regardless of the role you play in the festivities. For those of us going to the parties (JKGF will be an attendee and not a host…yaay for Super Bowl parties!! Even though we have the slightest idea which teams will be playing…;-), we have the easy route out because we can opt to bring a case of Heineken (which always makes everyone or someone happy at these group events) or a bottle of wine versus bringing a food dish.

Hosts, on the other hand, have the not-so-easy route. They have to prepare the munchies that will be consumed before, after and in between those touchdowns and passes. This is a quick recipe to whip up the night before (*it’ll hold everyone over until the pizza arrives or until the wings are finished cooking;-) and especially if this Super Bowl gathering is a last minute idea;-) Enjoy!
