Black Bean and Corn Salsa

I love eating chips and salsa. The combination of the crispy chips and the tangy salsa make for a great snack, or even a light meal.  The salsa that I usually use is the red or green tomato salsa from the snack aisle in the grocery store. So when I came across this recipe on the back of a can, I thought I would try it out and see what it would taste like. 

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

1 15oz can of black beans
1 12oz can of whole kernal corn
1 medium tomato, diced
1 small onion (red or white), diced
juice from 1 lemon
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
1 tsp ground cumin powder

Drain and rinse beans and corn.
Combine in a bowl with tomatoes, onion and jalapeno peppers.
Mix lemon juice and cumin powder together and pour over other ingredients.  Mix gently.
Serve with chips.
