Spicy Chilpotle Black Bean Salad

Spicy Chilpotle Black Bean Salad

A few weeks ago my husband went on a business trip, and while on a jog near his hotel he found a little organic grocery store.  He bought his usual staples of humus, fresh fruit and vegetables, but he also bought some salad from their food bar.  It was so good he wrote down the salad’s ingredients, and remade it at home.  This spicy chilpotle black bean salad turned out delicious with its hint of lime, cilantro, and a little kick of chilpotle pepper.

If you want a fabulous side dish, a healthy lunch main dish or even a unique salsa for tortilla chips, this spicy chilpotle black bean salad will soon be one of your favorites.
