When it comes to party essentials, an awesome chip dip is crucial. It is also the perfect reason to whip up a pineapple salsa recipe for your next celebration. There is nothing wrong with the standard tomato salsa, of course. Many of us could eat jars (and jars) of that stuff. Or is that just me?
Yet, there is nothing quite like a non-traditional salsa recipe. The pineapples in this version add a burst of sweetness that meshes so well with tomato, onion, black beans, and cilantro. Together, these ingredients create the ultimate party in your mouth. The addition of pineapple also doubles as an ode to summer, the season that we have been anxiously waiting for.
The best part about making your own salsa is the customization factor. You can mix and match the ingredients according to your preference. If you want to spice up this pineapple salsa, add chili pepper flakes. Other options include chopped jalapenos, chipotle peppers, or hot sauce. The combination possibilities are endless.
To top everything off, make a DIY Chipotle burrito bowl or two. It is the perfect reason to put your homemade salsa recipe to good use. If you are throwing a party, consider setting up a DIY burrito bowl bar. And do not forget my invite!
- 1 can diced pineapple
- 1 small tomato
- 1/4 sweet onion
- 1/2 can black beans
- Salt, pepper, and oregano
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Fresh cilantro
If you want a "soupy" salsa, leave some of the pineapple juice and black bean liquid. If you want a chunkier salsa, strain both the pineapples and black beans before starting.
1. Dice the tomato.
2. Dice the onion. You can use less if you're not a fan of onion.
3. Toss all the ingredients into a large bowl, along with some fresh cilantro. Adjust the salt, pepper, and spices according to your preference.
4. Garnish with more fresh cilantro and serve with tortilla chips. Easy peasy.
