This is a guest post from Gina of Kleinworth & Co.

This time of year I sure love to eat a little lighter. I have shared a lot of sweets here since I started contributing almost a year ago. Sweets are always a favorite for me, but as the temps rise I like to enjoy new & refreshing recipes that seem to be more on the snack side of things. So this time I wanted to share with you one of my favorite warm weather snacks, Corn & Black Bean Salsa (aka:street corn). It’s really simple to make & works great for an afternoon relaxing in the yard with friends or adding to a salad, burrito or even mixing into a casserole.

It comes together by sauteing your corn medley with your spices & a little butter. Then at the end you mix with a little mayo & lime juice to give it sort of crema flavor. Oh wow, it’s so good. We love to enjoy it like a salsa most of the time. Just serve with some tortilla chips & you have a snack that everyone has a hard time walking away from.

Assemble your ingredients: Ultimate Southwest Blend frozen pack (contains corn, black beans, chilies, red peppers & roasted onions), butter, chili powder, cumin, mayonnaise, lime juice, chives, salt and pepper

1 (14oz bag) Ultimate Southwest Blend frozen pack (contains corn, black beans, chilies, red peppers & roasted onions)
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp cumin
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp chives
Salt/Pepper to taste
 
Combine corn blend, butter and seasonings in a large skillet and saute.

Step 1: Combine corn blend, butter & seasonings (except chives) in a large skillet & saute for 7-10 minutes, or until corn starts to crisp & brown on the edges & beans are softened.

Add in mayo and lime juice to corn mixture and combine well.

Step 2: Add in mayo & lime juice & stir well.

Transfer corn and black bean salsa to serving bowl, garnish with chives and serve with tortilla chips.

Step 3: Transfer to serving bowl, garnish with chives & serve with tortilla chips.

We decided to add this to a pot of steamed rice for dinner. I have to say, it was a delicious deconstructed casserole. It made enough to allow the kids to have seconds, which they definitely took advantage of. If you love a flavor-packed twist on traditional salsa, this recipe is one you don’t want to miss.
