Recipe: Spicy Sriracha Salsa

This salsa is yummy – healthy and the kind of thing I just can’t stop eating.  It’s one of our favourites to eat with chips, in egg burritos, or even on top of grilled chicken.

Ingredients

•  1 white onion
•  2 limes (zest and juice)
•  a tablespoon of minced garlic
•  1 bunch of cilantro
•  4 roma tomatoes
•  2 small yellow, orange, red and jalapeño peppers
•  1 1/2 cups of corn
•  2 cups of black beans
•  1/4 cup of Sriracha (less or more, depending on your spice style)
•  2 tablespoons of olive oil
•  salt to flavour

First, dice onion (and try not to let your mascara run…) and put aside with lime zest, garlic and lime juice.  Letting the onion and garlic sit in the lime juice while you cut the other ingredients will allow the acid to balance the bitterness of the onion.

Second, cut the next 6 ingredients and place in a large bowl.  Drain and strain the corn and beans, and add to the salsa.  Mix while adding in the sriacha, olive oil, and the onion/garlic/lime mixture.  Bryce isn’t a fan of tomatoes, so I cut them super small…and the odd time, I even leave them out.
