    • Black Bean Salsa

      Heartier than your average salsa, this recipe features fiber-rich black beans. The zip is courtesy of green onion and cayenne pepper; the chill comes from chopped cucumber and tomato.

      When enchilada recipes call for salsa verde, make it homemade! Tomatillos and jalapeno peppers lend the distinctive green color, which is balanced by a pinch of sugar.
