I have a delicious dish to share with you today—Grilled Chicken with Black Bean Salsa. The grilled chicken has a rub that I put on it before I grilled it, and the black bean salsa was delicious. To make the rub, I took ¼ cup of brown sugar, half teaspoon of garlic powder, half teaspoon of salt, half teaspoon of pepper, and a teaspoon of your favor hot sauce and mixed them together. I took the rub and rubbed it on four breasts of chicken. In the end, it didn’t seem like there was enough rub on the chicken when it get done cooking, so the next time I make this I think that I would double the recipe for the rub.
While the chicken was grilling, I started making the black bean salsa. To make this salsa, I took a 14 oz can of black beans, 8 to 10 ounces of crushed pineapple, diced a couple of tomatoes, diced half of a red onion, a couple of garlic cloves, and some lime juice.
I strained the pineapple and then mixed the black beans with it, then added the diced tomatoes and onions. Then I used a garlic press to crush the garlic and added that to the salsa, added the salt and pepper, and then added a couple tablespoons of lime juice and mixed it all up. This ended up being a delicious salsa that went great with the chicken. I also tried it with some chips, and that was delicious as well.
With the black beans, pineapple, and lime juice, this salsa is a little different from your typical salsa, but was a very tasty part of this meal. Give it a try and let me know what you think (you don’t even have to do any grilling to make and try the salsa!).
I’ve also got a video here to show you what I to make this dish. Hope you enjoy it!
