Another Recipe from Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Homemade Spicy Bean Salsa!

This is the 12th installment of Janice’s Kitchen Corner.

I put together this recipe Homemade Spicy Bean Salsa with different kinds of beans to make a delicious and easy salsa that can be refrigerated for up to four days or more. It is addictive! You will never buy another salsa again! This is quick, easy and delicious. I love easy and delicious recipes. Don’t you?

Do you want your kids to eat veggies? They will love this salsa. Just don’t make it too spicy for their delicate tummies.

Here are the other recipes Stuffed Zucchini, Cole Slaw, Zucchini BreadZucchini Italiano, Grapenut Custard, Spinach Pita PizzaPortuguese Seafood StewMarinated Mushrooms, Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Chicken Marsala, and Rice Paper Veggie Shrimp Wraps. In the past I have also shared recipes for Portuguese Bisquits and Drunken Chicken.

Note: If you want to cut this recipe down, purchase smaller cans of ingredients and adjust seasonings to taste. When I make this, it is usually for company. Two people can’t possibly finish this in a week.
