Black Bean Corn Salsa

It is summer in Texas, which means it is eleventy hundred degrees.  When it gets this hot, I need cold food to eat.  I love, love, love this salsa, and sometimes use it as a side dish/salad. I love the coolness of it and the freshness of it, the cilantro and lime juice just makes it yummilicious. 

 As with anything add more or less garlic, onions, jalapeno, or cilantro to your liking.  I PILE on the cilantro.  

 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 ears sweet corn, cooked and kernels removed from cob
3 green onions, sliced  or 1/2  small sweet onion chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno, seeds removed and diced
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 large lime
Salt and pepper, to taste
Tortilla chips, for dipping

 In a large bowl, combine black beans, sweet corn, green onions, garlic, tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice. Stir and season with salt and pepper. Serve with tortilla chips.
