Spicy Tropical Fruit and Black Bean Salsa

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Sometimes great recipes are found in unexpected places. Anyone who knows me well, knows that one of my favorite places to shop for food is Aldi. This recipe is based on one from the back of a bag of Clancy’s Organic Blue Corn Chips by ALDI Inc. This is a great recipe to make early in the summer when mangoes and pineapple are cheap.


  • 2 cans black beans rinsed and drained or 1 cup dried bean, prepared
  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed
  • 1 fresh pineapple, cubed
  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • 1 fresh or frozen jalapeño, chopped (omit if you don’t want it spicy)
  • 1/4 cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbs lime of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt (Note: add more to taste if you used dried beans)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Toss gently to coat.
  3. Chill 15 minutes to an hour before serving.
  4. Serve and enjoy with chips, over salad or on top of steak, chicken or venison.
